Growing Lithops and Conophytums

Mike Hellmann will give a presentation on mesembs, focusing on lithops and conophytums. Small, charming and inexpensive, these South African plants take up little room and can thrive on a sunlit windowsill. Many mesembs flower in winter, too.

Welcome to the online home of the largest cactus and succulent group in the Midwest. Please explore our website and consider joining HSCSS. Our members are happy to share their knowledge with fellow hobbyists and the general public, as well.

Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Henry Shaw Cactus and Succulent Society is an affiliate chapter of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America and a member plant society of Missouri Botanical Garden. To all who share an interest in succulents and cacti, we wish you good growing.
