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.

November  presentation Q&A Panel discussion

Our panel will be composed of experts who will share their many years of experience and knowledge.  They are Sandy Chase, John Martinez, Karen Ostler, and Nils Schirrmacher.

The general format is highly interactive. The panel members will present general topics that are timely for the season, our locale, and the general weather we are experiencing. Additional subjects can include all things related with potting, staging, planting, propagation, and more.

Members are encouraged to ask questions and offer their opinions and thoughts, which will stimulate further discussions between the panel and members, and among the members.

Opuntia blooms again!

Must have enjoyed 
the winter rains.

Each orange flower is about 1/2" or less across.  As happens with many cacti, color of flower is startling bright with ordinary green of plant.
