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, August 1st at 12:30 PM

Flowering Cacti, Mesembs, Euphorbias, Bulbs, and the Never-Ending Struggle for More Space

For our next meeting, Peter will give a tour of his succulent plant collection and show many plants in bloom. As plants grow, new ones are added, and even more are propagated from seed or cuttings, space becomes an issue. The result is that Peter has over the years converted more and more yard to growing space for plants. Most recently, Peter has converted the sunniest section of the yard to a lithops growing area: in his talk, he will illustrate the construction of the new plant shelter. Peter joined CSSSJ about 20 years ago and has been active in the Club in various ways, mostly coordinating the Club's sales and vendors.

Join the Zoom Meeting here.
