SOUTH COAST CACTUS AND SUCCULENT SOCIETY MEETING

February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
  • This event has passed.
 “Freaky Flowers: Echinopsis Flowers in Bloom”

 

   

Cactus enthusiast Greg Krehel will show us numerous of his timelapses capturing the stunning beauty of Echinopsis flowers. We’ll see the flowers of over 25 different Echinopsis hybrids bloom. Many of the timelapses include the entire life of the flowers from blooming until wilting and/or capture surprising aspects of the blooming/wilting process. Greg’s work has been featured by National Geographic, the New York Times, the Huntington Library and Gardens, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, etc. This is a very unique presentation that you will not want to miss.  Greg grew up on the Penninsula, so lets give him a warm welcome back from Florida.
 Greg Krehel, a.k.a. Echinopsis Freak, has very nice web pages at http://echinopsisfreak.comand http://echinopsis.com, also a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/echinopsisfreak.
A great video can also be watched on YouTube at https://youtu.be/_hwDdE0Gu4E.
The Cactus & Succulent Society meets the second Sunday of the month. We begin our meetings at 1:00 PM to socialize, have refreshments, and buy plants.
