Cactus & Succulent Society of NM Meetings

September 17, 2021:  Members Steven Brack and Ralph Peters will talk about “Growing Mesembs in New Mexico.”  The “Mesemb group” is from southern Africa and includes “ice plants,” “living stones” and many other interesting plants.  The number of genera is huge and includes Delosperma, Lithops, Titanopsis, Rabiea, Aloinopsis, Conophytum, Argyroderma, Ruschia,….  Some make good yard plants in Albuquerque!

*The Cactus and Succulent Society of New Mexico meets the third Friday of most months in the Patio Room of the Garden Center.  Educational and entertaining presentations usually begin at about 7:45 p.m.  Visitors are welcome.  Please join us to learn more about these fascinating plants, or just enjoy the beautiful pictures of plants and places many of us will never have the opportunity to visit.
