Kalanchoe. My GF liked it so much we went back to the succulent section in the BBS and looked for more but they were out. We then went to the fresh flower section in Meijers and they had all kinds of them. I thought they were only in orange but it turns out they had red, purple and pink in various shades(hybrid). We picked up a purple one. They seem very easy to grow and flower for a long time. Supposed to be easy to propagate and hardy zone 8-10 I belive(nothing under 32). Here is the purple.Sweyn wrote:That's attractive, Rairdog. What are they called?
I am just learning. IMO these succulents need more water than cacti. I probably don't know what I'm doing but if you give them course drain-able soil/rock mixture and water each plant according to their needs it seems to work out. If they show signs of crinkling at the lower pups/leaves I water them individually. Truthfully I just pick out the ones that make a good arrangement and hope for the best. I don't know most of the names. For me it's just reading the plant and trying to figure out what it needs.Sweyn wrote:They look good. Do you treat them like cacti?
What is the paler, smaller plant on the right side of the pot?
I noticed the turtle in there. That's a nice touch.
