About the Club

The Philadelphia Cactus and Succulent Society was founded in 1942. Its purpose is to exchange knowledge of and experience with succulents among its members. This includes their study, culture, propagation, growing, and collection. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in growing and learning more about succulents. There are more than 100 members at all levels of expertise – beginners and experts, collectors and growers.

PCSS is a member of The Cactus and Succulent Society of America, an international organization dedicated to education, protection and preservation of some of nature’s most unique creations.

At each meeting in addition to a brief business meeting, we have a speaker or interesting activity, members donate plants which are then raffled off, a small table for selling items is available, and a “Plant of the Month” competition with judging and critique. 

Please see our calendar for links and meeting dates throughout the year.
