The sale includes succulents, cacti, and bromeliads from more than 25 regional nurseries and boutique growers. Other vendors offer hand-crafted studio pottery made especially for succulents. Throughout the weekend, experts will be on hand to answer your questions about plant selection and how to care for various species. There will be an hourly drawing for attendees to win a free plant, and staff to help you join the Society.

If you ever wondered about the difference between spines, teeth, and thorns, this is the place to find out! The show area will feature a wide-ranging display of spiny cactus clusters, toothy Agaves and Aloes, rarely-seen desert species, and succulent bonsai. Take it all in, and then vote for your favorite plants and tables to get People’s Choice awards.
