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: Dec 13, 2014
It's party time, as the GNYGS holds its annual holiday party. Please bring eats and drinks and a good spirit to our holiday celebration. Don't forget the silent auction of useful stuff (and sometimes not-so-useful stuff) and the no-nonsense rare plant auction too.
Both are tremendous fun and raise funds for your society.
All our regular activities will be there too: plant sales, education, socializing and lots of fun. See you then!
Please note: although we welcome visitors at our regular meetings, this party is for our members only.
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.
