I separated my Crassula Portulacea (Shrek Plant/ET fingers) and I think it/they look way nicer. Also added some basics back to my collection like Jade plants (bought one with 4 cuttings and separated) and a Zebra Haworthia

I got into Japanese Maples last fall and now have 12 of them  :)

 

So succulent collecting has taken a back seat this year. I've actually been thinning them out and giving allot away to my daughters so they can start a succulent garden or containers.

Stopped at a Lowe's while out of town this weekend and rebuilt most of what I had in my collection before, and added some new ones too! I got all the fake flowers cut off with minimal damage and potted them into 4 inch clay pots. I also decided to downsize the pots of the others that I had in 6 inch pots, to 4 inch as well.

I also bought a couple Brasiliopuntia Brasiliensis pads off eBay, the only place I could find them. That was the tall super prickly Opuntia I had before. I have them in 2 inch pots, no pics of those yet though.

Next year, I'll grow less plants...  :crazy:

Awesome!

Thanks! I also made my own mix this time... 1 part each of MG potting mix, Sand and Perlite. So hopefully that works well, it's a pretty common custom mix recommended on most cacti sites.

Next year, I'll grow less plants...  :crazy:

Pretty quiet in here this time of year! My collection of cacti and succulents are still alive and well in a basement window for the winter. How's everyone else's doing? Add anything new to your collection lately?


Everything...

Western Nebraska purple pincushion cactus I've had for about 6 years. She flowers every summer.

Ordered these 8 from Planetdesert.com which is in California. They have a pretty awesome site, huge selection. They just arrived today. Packaging was excellent, these were all wrapped in paper as well and shipped with a heatpack...
