I decided to try something different for me and get some that actually have names. They are nice but names do not really matter much to me I do not plan to sell any, I do give some to friends. When I had a dog it was a mutt not a pedigree so I guess I am basically a noid/mutt type of person.
I will do my best to keep the name tags and will have the photos.
Good news is some of the plants already had some chicks attached they are the ones in the cupcake tray.
And the one in the pot by itself next to the cupcake tray is already on its way to Noidville as I found that one on the ground and not sure where it came from.

Great Ed. Hope you have drainage holes in the bottoms of those containers. Like the muffin tins.

Jo Ann, I put holes in everything it only takes a few minutes and it does help get some of the excess water out.
I have found some of the larger planters are too close to the ground to drain well with bottom holes so they get holes drilled in the sides near the bottom.

Is that a peat based potting soil you are using?

As I like to experiment 2 of them are a cactus soil mix with a little additional pumice added in. The other 2 are cactus soil mix with some potting soil added in so this would be a heavier mix.
I have found that semps grow in anything have had them planted in just about every mix, top soil , dirt from the ground, compost, peat about the only thing that did not work to well for me was a heavy mix of sand.
