This is my pot of a few different succulents. I'm not sure of their names. "/ When I first put this together, there were just three tiny plants. Now it's grown so massive and some have even bloomed long beautiful yellow flowers!

Here is my succulent. I have no idea what it is but it's taking over one corner of the greenhouse and, who'd a thought? It blooms!

Thank you Tarev. I'm going to go make it a label and try to get it into the pot without being stabbed to death by the cactus growing in front of it - said cactus has 4 inch spines. Crying

Ouch! I see that! I would cut down the Crassula too if it were mine and replant the cuttings. I grow mine also in containers outdoors year round, since our conditions are milder.

Then I would have to take reponsibility for it. I dropped it back there so I could ignore it and it has rewarded me with flowers - if you can call them that. Smiling

I have been loving all the plant pics, especially the little Echeverias & hybrids.

Here are three aloe seedlings from the same mother, different father. Genetics in action...

Oh, I just had to comment on the tarev's Graptoveria. I took all the little leaves off the bloom spikes on mine last fall and set them in 2" pots and now I have like 50 babies.

I just started this one a couple of weeks ago. The snails got some of them pretty good while I couldn't garden

Great pictures of great plants. When it comes to non cacti I mainly grow Agaves and Aloes and related plants and some succulent Euphorbias, with maybe a Lithops here and there. Here is a picture of my Aloe vera clump in full bloom, with Aloe camperi getting ready to flower in the foreground. The trunk and lower leaves of my Aloe 'Hercules' are in there somewhere, as well what is either an Aloe thraskii or A. thraskii hybrid to the right of the Aloe vera - it bloomed in February.

Thank you everyone who has posted so far! So inspiring! I am truly in awe of all your plants. I've had a couple houseplants over the past year but only recently have I expanded my collection and become obsessed with all things plants (pun intended)!! I know I will catch up with you all in due time! Big Grin Green Grin! Big Grin
