If you'd like to come and get about 100 from my yard - feel free Grumbling
Sorry - they're an invasive menace here - can't ever get rid of them.

Hetty,
While you guys experience such plants as Sanseveria to be invasive, I'm still jealous of your year-round nice weather. Whistling

I am keeping this one in a pot far away from a flower bed. I know those 1000's of seeds, or 7 of mine will be looking for a new home.

I killed every one I have gotten. I have one that is called candle. I will probably kill it to by the end of winter *Blush*

I'm glad to be able to use these "as annuals." No danger of invasion here, except during a very occasional, unusually mild winter. A great way to "use" all of those babies that fall into pots.

I'm seeing how this plant can be invasive it's popping up in every pot I had around it. I don't mind so far until it gets in the wrong pot Hilarious! then...

I cut them off if one gets too big for its' companions (which is how I ended up with so many pieces out in the landscape.) If you don't want to mess with that, they're easy to pull up before they get that big, w/o disturbing the other plants. Removing a few lower leaves can be a way to let the smaller plants get some light & just leave them there. Everybody looks happy there ;) Every time I've had extras, people wanted them, for both trades & postage.

So far I like what's happening I waited all winter for those little pups to grow so I'm pretty impressed with it now it's so hearty looking! I have some ghost plants in there that will just grow out and down so it could look interesting when everyone is grown in.

You get to decide for your plants. Soliciting opinions & anecdotes definitely helps one make a more-informed decision, from having a better idea of what could result from the potential choices.

Yes when you live in a colder climate most succulents will not do what others see in a mild climate. They usually bloom in the winter and die on me before they go outside. So when I have babies I let them live so I have the blooms the following winter.

One man's weed is another man's flower.

I wish I had kept the babies from this pink one. I pulled all the babies and when it bloomed that winter it died.

If folks aren't seeing buds forming on these yet, try to move into more sun. Unless mine get really upset about being brought inside, I should have a fantastic crop of blooms soon! That's mostly why I keep these plants around.
