The Dutch-Belgian Society of Cactus- and Succulent Amateurs "SUCCULENTA" was founded in 1919 and is one of the oldest societies for the hobby. Nowadays it has 2500 members, who can participate in activities organised by 30 branches in Holland and Belgium.

Members receive the society's journal, also called 'Succulenta', which is published bimonthly and contains 48 pages and the society's newsletter. Both are written in Dutch. From 1998 on, there are abstracts in English for the articles. The journal contains first descriptions, cultivation and propagation tips, historical information and lots of colour pictures. The newsletter announces and reports on all the national and local activities. The December issue also contains our famous seedlist with about 1000 different offerings. Succulenta provides a good picture of the interests and activities related to the hobby in the lowlands.
