Cactus & Succulent Society  of Greater Chicago


Welcome to the
Cactus & Succulent Society of Greater Chicago! 


It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and club founder, Ted Biernacki. Ted passed on Saturday, January 16th, 2021. Ted was a great plantsman and contributed greatly to plant lovers within the Chicagoland area as well as places beyond. His nursery, Ted's Greenhouse located in Tinley Park, IL, is beyond compare in the Chicago area for its wide selection of succulents and cacti and many a plant obsession found its roots in the purchase of a little 3" pot of succulent loveliness.

Ted helped found the Cactus and Succulent Society of Greater Chicago along with other enthusiastic succulent lovers in the 1970s. Since then, he has supported the CSSGC with proceeds of sales at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show as well as our own show and sale at the Chicago Botanic Gardens throughout the years. Ted leaves behind a legacy of love for plants and plant knowledge that inspires anyone who walks into Ted's Greenhouse and goes home with newly found treasures. Rest in Peace, Good Friend. You will be missed.
