Program: The Secret Lives of Succulents

Succulents' bewildering diversity has earned them celebrity status among plant growers of all kinds. However, these plants are more than just beautiful. Succulents have conquered some of the harshest habitats on Earth. Join Matt Candeias from In Defense of Plants for a delightful look at the secret lives of succulents.

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.
