The Tribune (SLO) - - Local - BY SCOTT MIDDLECAMP

Cal Poly stu­dents will be sell­ing more than 100 va­ri­eties of suc­cu­lents — a to­tal of 4,000 plants — at its two-day Suc­cu­len­topia sale this week­end.

“Suc­cu­len­topia is the per­fect ex­am­ple of a ‘Learn by do­ing’ ex­pe­ri­ence,” stu­dent Kar­i­anna Ry­d­berg said in a news re­lease. “We have an in­cred­i­ble stu­dent suc­cu­lent crew that han­dles ev­ery as­pect of the grow­ing process, in­clud­ing prop­a­ga­tion, fer­til­iza­tion and pest man­age­ment.”

The stu­dent-run project, which was held for the first time last spring, is run by five stu­dents and offers a va­ri­ety of plant sizes: 4-inch pots for $4.50, 4.5-inch pots for $5.50, 6-inch suc­cu­lent gar­den for $12.50, 8-inch suc­cu­lent gar­den for $25, and other large plants priced ac­cord­ingly.

The sale will be held at the Hor­ti­cul­ture Unit near the Poly Plant Shop from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fri­day and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Satur­day.
