Minnesota State Fair Potted Plant Show

The annual MSHS Minnesota State Fair Cacti, Succulent and Potted Plant Show is underway through tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 22) in the Agriculture/Horticulture Building at the fair.

In addition to the folks competing for ribbons, several plant societies have displays worth a visit. The¬† Minnesota Hosta Society, the Upper Midwest Carnivorous Plant Society and the Minnesota Mycological Society are among the groups with displays and information. The fair is not just about fried food — it’s also a great chance to learn about gardening and other hobbies. Stop by the show today or tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here are some photos of the exhibits and entries.
