Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

Here is an arrangement I made a couple weeks ago. It was supposed to be for mothers day but my girlfriend liked it so I put it over the kitchen sink and made another one. Next time I'm over I will snap a pic of mom's. The Lowes here has a bunch of new varieties. I'm experiment with trying to get the leaves to that fall off to grow into new plants.

Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

Very nice and thanks for sharing, guys. :)


I love creating my own pots of various succulents too. Yours is very nice, Rairdog.


This is another favorite. It's baby burro's tail...called "burrito". You have probably seen the larger and more common type, called Burro's Tail. A friend in Texas sent me the sedum cuttings a couple years ago and I've created many new plants from them. Just one small cutting, will fill a pot in record time, if given good sunlight. Here is one of my pots this spring....

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.

Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

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.

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.

Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

I like your approach, Rairdog. After many years of trying different plants, I've learnt that it's important to pay attention to individual plants and respond as they develop and change. It's possible to learn a lot from other people but, you need experience as well. Plants don't always grow exactly the same way, for everyone.

I like Kalanchoes but, had not considered them until now. It's nice to choose whichever plants appeal to you and learn as much as possible about it.

Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

They look very impressive. How often do you feed them? Do use a combined, cacti and succulent fertiliser?

Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

Im kinda iffy when it comes to feeding my plant's i always think I'm gonna kill them! I usually do it every 4-5 watering i dilute it in a spray bottle with purified water, sink water is to harsh for plant's let alone human beings! Its a MG cacti+succulent plant food, (Which is why I'm kinda resistant to using it) i spray a little on then i water with regular water the next few times the soil is dry. I JUST lost a bid off of one of my flowering cacti cause someone thought it was a fluffy bug (SMH :roll: )
So kinda upset about that! But my rebutia decided that it was gonna make up for its fellow cacti losing a bud by opening another flower for ME and showing me a promise for another one to open at any time, it still has 11 more buds to open on it!

Re: Post a peek of your succulent plants

You've done very well. I hadn't heard of using spray bottles on them. The plants and flowers look very good.

Please post your advice about flowering, here https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/vi ... 38&t=57989 It would help me and anyone else who wants to know, to have advice about it, in one thread. Thanks.

I'm quite new to the world of succulents. But here's what I've got so far~ most of these plants are acquired in the past month. I live in an apartment so only have a window sill so can't get too many plants :(

Awesome! I wonder when I'll see my first bloom... at this rate it seems like my lithops from local nursery will bloom first! It seems like a weird time for it to bloom, no?
