Dr. Robert H. Webb is a retired hydrologist who owns and manages Arid Lands Greenhouses in Tucson. Among the many species of succulent plants that he grows and loves, Sansevierias are around the top. He has described or is in the process of describing 9 new species or subspecies of Sansevieria. Alan Myklebust and Webb are the chairmen and editors of the International Sansevieria Society, a small specialty organization now based in Tucson and affiliated with the Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society. Their flagship publication, Sansevieria, just released issue 39. This talk, not surprisingly, is about Sansevierias, the diversity of form and size of the existing species (about 80) and discussion of the new ones being found in Africa.
This will be an excellent presentation that everyone will really enjoy. Please come and make some new friends, talk with members and guests, have some fun, check out our library books and be sure to enjoy the great refreshments. Also, be sure to stay until the end of the meeting and get your free plant offered by the TCSS.
