During HSCSS’ February meeting, Missouri Botanical Garden’s Aramis Vicente described his work with xeric plant propagation and maintaining the garden’s cactus and succulent collections. He and HSCSS member Pat Thomann also described the status of MBG’s current project to transform the Shoenberg Temperate House into an Arid House showcasing cactus and succulents from all over the world. HSCSS members may be able to assist with plant care in some fashion as this process evolves. The succulents’ new home is projected to be finished late this year or in early 2024.
