The 2019 Cactus, Succulent, and Bromeliad Festival formally launched today and has loads in store for plant enthusiasts.

A highlight of the event are the competitions that gives participants a chance to showcase some of their cherished plants, which guests can view  at the venue throughout the duration of the festival.

Other activities include free seminars on how to properly care for the three plant varieties held every 1PM and 4PM daily.

A plant bazaar, made up of 40 exhibitors, are also available so guests could buy their own plant babies and even start a new hobby in gardening (or develop a collection).

The Cactus, Succulent, and Bromeliad Festival will run until June 23, Sunday, at SM Mall of Asia’s Main Mall Atrium in Pasay City.
