Tom Glavich is a long time grower of cacti and succulent plants. He is one of the co-chairs of the Inter-City Cactus and Succulent Show in Los Angeles, the largest in the United States with typically 1500 or so entries. He has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America and the author of two booklets for the CSSA, one on monocots and one on dicots, both focused on beginners. He is a frequent speaker and show judge at events throughout the south-west United States.

This talk is a survey of mutant cacti and succulents, with a look at crests, monstrose, and variegated plants. The talk includes examples of each, and discusses how loss of meristem control produces abnormal growth. Sections of the talk show display techniques to maximize the appearance, and concludes with a section on cultivation and propagation.

Does anyone know if the talk is available on Facebook at all for 24 hours? Someone on Reddit would like to watch the talk but I don't know my way around the Facebook page.

Noticed a bunch of people came from Reddit during the talk, there are 263 BCSS users there now.

Still can't believe that bad news today.

I think I can recall someone said it was available 24 hours after the talk.
But sometimes I get the idea in situations I am not sure about stuff I have just imaged things or dreamt about things, so for all I know this could be one of those things I made up myself. But then again, who dreams about online zoom calls...
