ACSS Meeting

  • 17 Sep 2015
  • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Austin Area Garden Center at Zilker Botanical Garden


7:00 pm - Refreshments and Conversations
7:30 pm - Program: Rock and Tree Dwelling Succulents of Australia by Attila Kapitany

Unlike Attila's usual talks which cover desert plants from sandy, arid regions of the continent, this is a look at the exciting plants that can be found on the east coast and closer to major cities. Here you will see and learn about some of the weirdest succulent plants in the world, including 'ant plants' and orchids. 

Attila Kapitany is immediate past president of the Cactus & Succulent Society of Australia with 10 years in this position, and is also currently editor of its journal. 

He has thirty years of experience growing and marketing cacti and succulents.  Attila is also a member of the Horticultural Media in Australia, writing regularly in magazines, journals and newspapers and promoting succulent plants. 

Attila has co-written seven books with Rudolf Schulz about succulents, with an eighth book a solo effort on Australian native species. His newest publications are a series of eight booklets on xerophytic Australia plants.

Since 2007 Attila has dedicated much of his time and resources to promoting our lesser known Australian succulent plants, touring the Australian speaking circuit regularly and featuring on television and radio.
