Pineapple top that I rooted in ground last summer, put in pot for winter, now back in ground for summer. With Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi leaves (that will make babies on the edges.)
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/f56a61

A little Jade (Crassula ovata) put in ground for temporary summer vacation.


Calandrinia grandiflora (rock purslane) and Kleinia petraea (trailing jade.)


Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, Gasteraloe, variegated Plectranthus ambionicus in ground for summer.
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/fab53a

All of the following pics are individuals that were left outside all winter.

Some kind of Sedeveria, I think. They looked weird so I threw them on the ground to perish last fall. They didn't...
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/b889b6

I ran out of room for Euphorbia tirucalli individuals inside for winter & this one got left out. The taller stems got ruined but the roots & lower parts are still very much alive.


Not sure exactly who this survivor of winter outside is...

Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi (lavender scallops.)
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/d68ad2

Not sure.
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/580fe3

Same as the suspected Sedeveria from above. This Hatiora gaertneri (Easter cactus) didn't look right, so I didn't bring it in. It's been laying on the ground, bare-root & has some buds on it.
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/29bb74

Kalanchoe x houghtonii & more K. fedtschenkoi babies.
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/2efc14

K. fed.
Thumb of 2016-04-01/purpleinopp/b41012

This winter was unusually mild for my location, the lowest temp all winter was about 23.

Tiffany,
I was hoping to see your Sans going in the ground this year. Are you still going to do so?

Deborah, I agree!

Stush, yes, if it ever stops raining! I've only just begun. I had to wait for some trees to leaf-out & make more shade. And I want to put some in a raised planter thing I'm building. (If I build it, they will come? LOL!)

This particular Kalanchoe blossfeldiana plant wasn't blooming when it got put in the ground. Looks like it feels like doing it now.

Peperomia verticillata is SO happy! I put this little stem (about 6") tall in the ground around 3 mos ago & it's about tripled in size.

TYVM, Stush! I don't do much after they're planted but look around & check on what things look like, sprinkle some water if it doesn't rain for a while.
