Hello everyone,

I lost two of my succulents today and wonder what to replace them with??
I lost a Sempervivum 'Jade Rose' and a Sedum morganianum 'Burrito' which
were planted where they get full sun and of course here in Houston, TX it does
get hot. So what do I replace them with in those same locations??
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.

So, What about these possible replacements

Sedum rubrotinctum 'Jelly Bean' or 'Mini Me'
Sempervivum tectorum 'Isella'
Aeonium 'Kiwi'
Pachyphytum hookeri
Aloe jucunda
Corpuscularia lehmannii
or Anacampseros rufescens 'Sand Rose'

Cross the Aeonium and Aloe off your list because they will not tolerate a hot, sunny location. I suspect a few others (Sedum, Semp, Pachyphytum) probably would not enjoy that either. I have no experience with the last 2 plants.

Well the last two call for full sun and one
of the plants in the bowl where I would put these plants
is an Anacampseros, so I expect that would do just fine,
