You are really going to town with plants and seedlings! It all sounds wonderful and you will be very busy this Spring and Summer caring for all of them.
That Sansevieria was labelled as Mikado. I have read it is a type of Cylindrica and it's sometimes called Fernwood Mikado. It will be interesting to see how it grows as it matures.
I'm enjoying your blog.

Yes, I have probably overloaded my wagon again. It is hard not to do so after I sat last season out.
Part of the problem is our winter/spring weather has been so wonderful. It is just right to be outside. When it gets too hot, I'll know I lost my mind.

I love the tiny Sans, thanks for the ID on it. Do they stay that small? That one is really cool. I noticed tonight that the Senecio Articulatis seems to be perking back up. That is a really pretty plant. I'm nervous as I've never had long term success with Senecio or Crassulas but I'll try, try again.

BTW, I appreciate the bromeliad link you posted earlier. I had lost that link and been searching for it. Thanks much for sharing it. (and for reading the blog) I find it is a way to jog my own memory on plants and dates and save photos. Too many grey hairs get in the way. Green Grin!

I should probably do a blog too. It would help me remember when I planted things and all that good info I should remember! I know how it goes when the weather is nice. I used to do the same thing and then the heat would hit and I wouldn't want to even go outside except at maybe 6am.

I'm not sure that name is valid for the sans. It is all over the web, but not to be found in the Catalogue of Life. I guess that's one we'll have to have a discussion about in the plant ID group.

That crassula is the first one I've ever been able to successfully grow, and I pretty much leave it alone and don't over water. I killed all the rest by too much love. Just for fun I've planted some up outside in AZ. They look good right now, but the triple digit heat will probably do them in.

Whenever I see something posted that I want to save and be able to find again, I star it and write a note about what it is. It works better than trying to search for things.

Planting succulents outside is something I've been doing when I had multiples to sacrifice. Some did well, others not so well. I actually am planning to try that with the extra bromeliads and that was why I was in search of your link.

Starring something sounds easier that trying to find it in a blog. So educate me on how to 'star' something please? Confused

It is easy. There is a star next to an acorn under each post. You just click on the star to save it. Then go into your profile, and find the starred items. When you see the post, you can click to edit and write yourself a note about it. These notes will be in alphabetical order, so if you want it up top make sure you name it something that will result in that.

All right! That is a handy feature. I starred your post and it worked. Then I realized I could read other peoples 'starred' pages. How interesting. But you must be a good cook! It made me hungry just looking at all your starred pages! LOL

Seriously... I do appreciate that tip. Thank You!

You're welcome! I tend to get into cooking ruts, so the good cooks on the group are inspiring me to try some new things. They always post about what they had for dinner, and it all sounds so good.

That is a problem here too, which is why I only try a new one occasionally. Most of the time we try to have a healthy diet.
