Sucs for You VIP Club!

I’m excited to announce a new feature for members of the online version of The Succulent Manual and I hope you’ll join!

The VIP level includes online access to The Succulent Manual plus the Sucs for You VIP Club’s Facebook group, or if you prefer, a monthly email Q&A session with the author, Andrea Afra.

I have a great team of knowledgeable moderators on board to help as well, and I will review each post to make sure you are getting the right guidance.
