Cactus and Succulent Sale

  

The Central Ohio Cactus and Succulent Society will be hosting its annual spring show and sale on Saturday April 19th at the Franklin Park Conservatory in the Viridian room (the first classroom in the hallway past the Desert Biome)

    There will be a good selection of plants to choose from, including many unusual, and hard to find species, as well as some of the more familiar "standards". We offer plants of many sizes, from nice miniatures, suitable for creating your own dish garden, to larger plants, more suitable for larger pots and planters. We will also offer a few established dish gardens, featuring plants which are easy to grow, and adaptable to a wide variety of growing conditions. Other items may include cactus soil, pots, and decorative rocks. Members of the Society will be available to assist with sales, and to provide tips on how to grow these plants. All plants are in limited supply, so plan to come early for the best selection.

    Show plants will include some larger, established plants grown by members of the Society.

 

    While it is impossible to provide a complete listing of the plants offered, we will probably have plants from the following genera:
