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.

In ordinary times, the club's annual membership fee is $15 per person, or $20 per couple. Since these are not ordinary times, membership fees are suspended until 2022.

Upcoming Events

Monthly Club Meeting: Sunday, October 3rd at 12:30 PM

Gunnar Eisel: The Folklore, Enchantment, and Evolution of the C&S Hobby from 1894 to the present day

Gunnar Eisel, Executive Director of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America (CSSA) and President of the San Gabriel Valley Cactus and Succulent Society, will discuss the history of Cactus-and-Succulent collection over the past century-plus.

"The allure of cacti and succulents has fascinated people for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. However, unlike some other horticultural endeavors, the collecting and fostering of an interest in the C&S is fairly new. This program focuses on the people, the changing American landscape, and a curious set of events that have shaped our hobby as we find it today."
