At typical meetings, guest speakers present varied programs of interest to succulent hobbyists. Hands-on workshops may focus on pruning, potting or dividing plants. Members are encouraged to bring in plants to show off and share their cultivation secrets. Books from the club’s library can be requested for pick up – and don’t forget the attendance prizes!

Henry Shaw Cactus and Succulent Society’s main event is its Annual Show and Sale, held each summer at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri. This multiday fund-raising event attracts dozens of member exhibitors who bring their best specimens for judging and display. The best entries in over 150 categories receive trophies, ribbons and other awards. Vendors will supply thousands of starter and specimen plants for sale, too.
