Welcome to the website of the Greater New York Gesneriad Society. Our society was founded over 45 years ago by hobbyists devoted to gesneriads, plants in the Gesneriaceae family.
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. 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.
We meet every 3rd Saturday of the month (except July and August – when there are no meetings, and other changes due to holidays)
The Greater New York Gesneriad Society is a chapter of The Gesneriad Society, formerly the American Gloxinia and Gesneriad Society.
