Lynn I dug up 2 full buckets of bulbs last autumn when I planted the sedum there and so to see anything there is surprising but to see it so full and happy is shocking Hilarious! I plan to pull them as I see them and let the ones that are away from the plants be! I tip my hat to you.

I know what is hard, but spring is just around the corner for you Brea. Hurray!
That is one of things that makes this site so wonderful, we can share photos with those that are still in winter.

I really need to get out and take some more sedum photos.

Hi everyone!
No new photos yet, @valleylynn ? 😔 We are all patiently waiting. Especially those of us who just received more snow again!

I have a question and I hope I am in the right spot to ask it. I just purchased MORE little crack plants (succulents & sedum lol) and one little bunch of them was from Meijer.
They were in a prearranged planter and along with it came this funny little pokey plant that I thought was and air plants. When I got it home it had roots and was planted with the other plants? Needless to say I was a bit perplexed.
It's "arms" are very hard (not soft like any othet succulent or sedum i have ever had) and what seems to be dried up?
There is a broken "arm" and a couple are "shriveled up" as well. It does look nice and green, with a white dusting on it ( I believe this is purposeful and is a part of the plants coloring) but I am unsure as to how I should care for it?
The roots are nice and balled up, of course, so I don't know really what I should do, so I took some photographs and any help from you would be so wonderful and greatly appreciated!!!!
Also, a name for it other than "the crazy spiky creepy pokey thing" would be great! I do have a couple more questions about this bunch I purchased, and a couple other plants that I purchased during my mad shopping spree over the last couple days but, I will wait for this one to be answered first. Heehee....😉
Thank you friends!!!!
:thankyou:

Brea, sorry to say it has been raining here by the buckets full. I've not had a chance to get more photos. I do promise as soon as I have a break in the weather I will get you some new photos. Big Grin

I don't know much about either the aloes or dyckia. I can see that it could be one of them. Start a new thread by making a new post with a photo in it.
Audrey, do you have dyckia?
There are a bunch of people that are really good at tracking plants down to a name. And Audrey may have the answer. Hurray!

I do have some Lynn. They are type of terrestrial bromeliad that are very hardy. I am unsure of what one Brea has but I am pretty sure it is a silver colored thirsty dyckia that needs a little trim. Watch out for those thorns though! They do mean business.

Bromeliad (Dyckia 'Grape Jelly')

This is the one I have. I also have an unknown red one.

Do they have root balls like the one Brea has?
Wow, those thorns look lethal.

They can yes. Those roots are either smaller because it has recently been separated from the mother plant or it has been over and under watered in the past rotting off some of the roots. If allowed the space they can have really big root systems. They need well drained soil and average watering to look their best but they can take a large amount of abuse. The leaves will look a little shriveled when thirsty giving plenty of notice when they are not doing the best.
