“Miracle Houseplants,” plants that include African Violets, Florist Gloxinias, Cape Primroses
(Streptocarpus) and many other common houseplants. Download and read a recent issue of our newsletter.

Hunting Gesneriads in China
Couldn't make it to China this past spring to search through hundreds of miles of difficult and sometimes treacherous terrain to seek and find the rare,
the uncommon, and the never seen before gesneriads growing in their natural habitat?? No?? Well join us on Saturday and hear our own Gussie,
Paul and Carolyn describe their journey and take us on a guided tour, sharing the trials, tribulations and the
excitement of this special, once in a life time (for most of us) trip. You'll see fantastic canyons, enormous caves and experience the natural wonders of China.
Note that this month's meeting is back at our regular time (11AM-2PM).
Also, we will have our regular sale of plants propagated by our members, a judged Little Show of members' plants, a hospitality table, and usually some supplies for sale. We're a chatty group so be prepared for socializing before the meeting begins.
We meet at the LGBT Center , 208 West 13th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues, in Manhattan (Subways: A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, 9 to 14th Street, L to 8th Avenue).
Meetings are from 11:30 am to 2 pm, with the program starting at 12:30 pm. The facilities are wheelchair accessible. Our monthly meetings feature an educational program, plant sales, raffle, a judged “Little Show” and socializing. Plants, cuttings, seeds, growing supplies and advice always available.
The Greater New York Gesneriad Society is a chapter of The Gesneriad Society, formerly the American Gloxinia and Gesneriad Society.
