Philadelphia Cactus and Succulent Society
The Philadelphia Cactus & Succulent Society was founded in 1942 to help Delaware Valley cactus and succulent hobbyists learn more about these unusual plants in order to grow them better. For 75 years their primary interaction was a monthly in-person meeting, but in the past few years, they have expanded their outreach via Facebook, Instagram, and Zoom meetings, in addition to the monthly meetings taking place from September through June. Their first exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show was in 1956, when only one plant society was invited each year. They were invited to return a few more times, and became a permanent fixture at the Flower Show in 1966.
