We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month except for July and August, at 331 Madison Avenue (near 43rd St), 7th Floor. Meetings cover all aspects of cactus and succulent growing; formats range from talks to slide shows to sessions on repotting techniques. We also make trips to plant shows and sales in and outside of the city and visit members' collections.

Please join us! Prospective new members and guests are always welcome at meetings, and we always love seeing any plants you would like to show off.
