My aeonium arboreum seems to be trying to follow the sun, especially the one making a 2nd attempt to bloom.
I love the cold season, when the color changes are more prominent too:

Photo this March 2014: don't know if it is trying to follow the sun or hiding from it Shrug!

Finally seeing some new growth on this aeonium stem..have chopped off the head last 2012, and moved it to a ball planter I was making then. Nice to see multiple tiny rosettes this March 2014: Smiling

Thank you, tarev. I included a few that aren't tender succulents but still interesting, I hope. I love your plant photos too. Thumbs up

Photo last Sept 2013 have repotted it to cover the hole left by the faded blooms and putting some stones and smaller ones to fill the hole:

Photo this March 2014, looks like it has multiplied nicely, and there seems to be a breakaway ring of semps on the left side..I love the varying color hues.

Hey Tee, I got a similar looking bonsai - fat caudex Smiling ..I got this last Thanksgiving, so still learning how to grow it, so far it has survived winter indoors nicely.
The label on the plant says Ficus microcarpa 'Ginseng'

Those can be tricky. I've lost a Pachypodium or two. They don't like water during cool fall and winter months but you probably already know that. I'd give that one more time and see what happens after your weather warms.

I know what you mean. We've had an unusually cold winter and now temps are up and down like a roller coaster.
