Dan’s first presentation in 2021 began with a characterization of succulent trees and an overview of the important families and genera. This presentation will focus on general growing practices, especially as container plants, and conclude with a showing of less-ordinary species that have substantial horticultural potential, but are possibly under-appreciated, and therefore, under-utilized. Dan Mahr has been growing cacti and other succulents continuously since – over 60 years. He and his wife Susan are both entomologists and lived in Wisconsin for 40 years, on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Dan has been a member of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America for 45 years and was on the Board of Directors for 15 years, serving as CSSA president in 2005-2006. Dan founded the CSSA Fields Trips Program in 1998 and served as its director for 20 years, organizing field trips for CSSA members to cactus and succulent habitats throughout the world. He has personally seen succulents growing in their native habitats in 25 countries in Europe, Africa, Latin America, Australia, and various island countries.
