Welcome, Visitors!

The Cactus and Succulent Society of San Jose (CSSSJ) welcomes you to our website.

The CSSSJ is a diverse group of people with a mutual interest in and fascination for cacti and other succulent plants.

Succulent plants are among the most bizarre, beautiful, and varied in the entire plant kingdom. If you share our interest in these fascinating and unique plants or just want to learn more, we invite you to join us at our meetings and have some fun.

Upcoming Events

PLEASE NOTE: an earlier version of the Cactus Courier for November stated that admission to the Holiday Extravaganza will be free of charge. This is incorrect: admission will be $20. We apologize for the error and any resultant confusion.

Saturday, December 14th: CSSSJ Holiday Extravaganza

In keeping with a longstanding tradition, we’ll be gathering to celebrate the end of the year in good company and good cheer. In a marked departure from tradition, we’ll be doing so in the venue where we hold our Spring and Fall Show and Sale events: Peterson Middle School.

All of the other traditions will be preserved: lunch, a gift exchange, and Auctions both silent and live. It’ll be fun, so don’t miss it. You can purchase your ticket(s) via the occasion’s EventBrite page.
