For indoors or outdoors? Semps and sedums are hardy succulents, not tender ones, of course. Do you have any of those?

Thanks, Chris.

Teresa, the red plant is a Sempervivum but, alas, I don't know which one. Glare

Very nice!!!

LOL - right now, I just have a bunch of stuff stuffed in one pot, hoping they root. And I do mean a bunch - probably about 9 different species. *Blush*
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

Beautiful Greg. Love those little sink containers!! Do you keep them inside all year or put them outside in the summer?

Oh good! I didn't post all that I was going to Sticking tongue out
Chris - I move them in and out, these ones I shelter a bit under larger plants. I've noticed though that even the plants that I place getting only morning sun, do so much better than an indoor environment (unless it gets too cold for them) Pretty amazing what sunshine and wind can do!
Peace

I have some tender ones I bring inside in the winter too and I agree - they're much happier outside in summer.

I agree Chris, and it always amazes me how quickly they "catch up". I've only had most of my succulents for 1 summer but they just did so well!!
