Just because a couple of succulents have died from neglect while in your care (#imguilty) doesn’t mean you have to give up your plant hobby. You just need a bit of practice—and perhaps talk to an expert!
Seasoned green thumbs will be out in full force this weekend at the Cactus and Succulent Society Queensland Show. Expect things to get prickly in their annual competition of rare plants but, the best bit? A fabulous collection of cacti and succulents are up for sale!
The plant-babies up for grabs have been lovingly raised by specialist growers and have originated from arid regions around the world (North and South America, Africa and Madagascar!). They thrive in even the most barren landscapes, so we trust they will be safe in your hands (prior casualties or otherwise…).
Have a chat to the friendly members and expect plenty of ‘ah-ha’ moments—they love to spill hot tips and tricks to keeping plant babies alive and thriving. School up on your greenery knowledge with lots of plant books for sale, too. (If you didn’t realise that you actually have to dust your plants, you know now).
So block out your weekend, you have some serious plant shopping to do. The Cactus and Succulent Society will be at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Auditorium this Saturday and Sunday.
