cactus show

One of the cactus growers at the show last year.

Check out bizarre cacti and amazing succulents Saturday at Mulhall's.

Specialty growers will be on hand for the event at 3615 N. 120th St. It starts at 9 a.m. with a growers' trunk show, which runs until 4 p.m.

Terri Mann from Chaos on Coyote Trail in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, will share some of her best tips for successful care, repotting, and propagation of many cacti and other succulents.

Plant owners can bring something from home to show off in the cacti and succulent plant contest for the chance to win a special edition event T-shirt and one of three Mulhall’s gift cards of up to $100. Registration is from 9 to 10 a.m., and plants can be retrieved at 2 p.m.

Most important, Mulhall's says, they want to see your favorite − and strangest − plants. Judges will include expert growers and other plant enthusiasts from the Mulhall's team.

All vendors will accept cash only.

9 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Growers’ trunk show
