Welcome to the website of the Greater New York Gesneriad Society. We are a group of houseplant enthusiasts interested in the
“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.

Next Meeting: Jan 17, 2015
Group discussion of Sinningias
Some of our more experienced growers will moderate a discussion on the perils and joys of growing sinningias. We hope all the members will have questions and comments and even bring examples of the sinningias they grow (well-wrapped against the cold, of course).
We will also 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.
