The Greater New York Gesneriad Society

Welcome! We are a group of houseplant enthusiasts interested in the “Miracle Houseplants,” plants that include African violets (Saintpaulia), florist gloxinias (Sinningia), Cape primroses (Streptocarpus) and many other common houseplants.

June 20th, 11:30am - Virtual "Giant Show n' Tell"

GNYGS goes online!


Because we haven't been able to meet in-person due to the pandemic, we'd like to try a meeting over Zoom.


Do you have a very large or delicate plant that you wouldn't want to risk bringing for an in-person show n' tell? Have plants that you were prepping for Convention? Now's the time to show them off, while visiting with your GNYGS community.

A Zoom link and instructions will be emailed to all members on the morning of 6/20/2020. If you are concerned that you won't receive a link, please email Megan Nelson at

Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, and out of concern for the health of our members, guests, and friends, we are not currently meeting at the LGBT Community Center. We hope to be able to return to in-person meetings soon!
