Succulents before the rain


Happy Cactus Monday everybody! I haven't posted on Cactus Monday in a while. So I have missed you all. I wanted to show you a succulent mix today. I took these pictures before the rain started. We really haven't had much till today and it rained sideways! LOL I planted this pot at the end of last summer. This spring it just took off. The plant in the front is a type of fuzzy crassula and it's blooming like crazy. The bunch to the right is sedeveria blue mist. And to the left is echeveria perle von nuremburg (I think!)

Madagacar palm summer 2010

Another of my favorites. My madagascar palm. I have grown this from a little thing! Every winter it loses most of it's leaves. But summer comes and it recovers so beautifully!

Krazy Kalancho and friends!

Here are some potted plants against my sliding back door. My pot with Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi is going crazy. Next year I will have to put in a bigger pot or in my succulent bed in the front yard. All these pots of succulents are going wild! I love it.


Last is my Sempervivum arachnoideum. Looks like spiders have been busy on it don't you think? Not! This is why it is called arachnoideum it makes it's own webs!!!

Have a great week and Happy Cactus Monday!

Oh, such sweet succulents! The Madagascar palm is cute and I didn't know that Sempervivum arachnoideum makes its own web, neat!

They're all just gorgeous! Your fuzzy crassula looks like something I've got that is a Pine Tree something...have a fuzzy one and a not so fuzzy one. Mine's not near as full as!

Those are lovely! I love arachnoideums! They're just the cutest things.

I brought all of my succulents in on Monday and then separated a few of them into separate pots. Any tips for keeping them a) alive and b) less bug infested indoors over the winter?
