I'm not a succulents person at all, but THAT is impressive, really an eye-catcher.
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

Thank you James and Carol.
This is my first full year with this S. calcareum, and it is showing that it is a good producer of offsets and goes through some amazing color changes.
So glad you like it.

Thank you Wes. I never thought about making cards using my own photos. I'll have to look into that. Thank you for the idea.

Hi Tate, and thank you. Yes it is in a cinder block. We have 22 4x8 foot raised beds filled with sandy loam. The semps seem to love it.
