About a month ago I got a bunch of succulents and put them in a fish tank. I then got a few leaves and put them in these saucer cups. The ones in the tank weren't getting enough sun and were stretched. The ones in the cups didn't seem to be thriving either.

My local gardening shop had A Fourth of July sale and everything was 50% off. I picked up tons of pots, rooting hormones and nutrients. I put rooting powder on my leaves and put everything in new pots. After moving everything outside and comparing my to soils I think I should of used more perlite in the two round pots.

Last week my lithops seeds came in so I got a germination tray for the seeds.

The old tank setup up.

You have some nice plants. That sounds like you found a great sale!

An aquarium isn't the best place for succulents. They are too humid in a terrarium environment. Where are you located? If possible, they do best outside, or possibly just brought inside for winter.

I moved my plants to pots and put them outside in a nice sunny area. Fried most of my stuff.
The thread "I think I burnt my succulents" in Cactus and Tender Succulents forum

For the last week I was working on rebuilding and ended up with more stuff then I know what to do with. Right now they are in my yard under an umbrella to protect it from the sun, rain and keep them a little cooler. I didn't have much perlite so I had to keep some pots a little less the full.
