Meeting in the San Fernando Valley.
Come and Visit (when our meetings resume)

Welcome to the website of the Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society. Our more than  200 members come from throughout the southland and share a passion for cacti and succulents. Throughout the history of LACSS, many of the most prominent researchers, authors, and collectors of the succulent world have been leaders and members of our society. 

Doors open at 6:15 for our monthly meetings including the Social Hour, Ask an Expert, and much more. The business meeting starts promptly at 7:20. Attendance is FREE and open to the public. Each new visitor receives a free plant!  We hope to see you at a meeting soon!
