Round Table Discussion

Have you ever questioned why your plant is doing something strange? Do you feel that there is something about succulents you wanted to ask but never got the chance? Is there some knowledge you have gained that you would like to share with other enthusiasts? Well, this meeting is that opportunity.

Bring that unidentified plant or the one that grew oddly. Bring your questions and your answers. What tips and tricks have you gleaned from your experiences with growing succulents? Do you know of a little known source for quality or rare plants? Having a problem with the health of your collection? Or maybe you have come up with an innovative way of dealing with a health threat? What do you feed your plants? How about repotting?

This month's meeting is dedicated to the sharing of information.
