Special #BennyTheTreeFrog post… I removed the #KenyanViolet that was in this pot because they of course can’t get wet, and I couldn’t kick Benny out of his new home! So the violets are comfy in their new pot and he’s enjoying life! I added a bunch of soil to the pot to keep him warm and dry * enough*when it rains. I might plant something in it soon. He’d probably like that. Anyone have an idea for what I should plant in here? It’s a 4.5” plastic pot. Anyway, here are some pics of Benny taken over the last few days. The two where he is out of the pot, he was hunting for bugs to eat and it was dark out so I couldn’t get great shots, but the first one is my favorite because he had just poked his head out and his little fingers gripping the edge are just so cute. I guess I have a wild pet frog now! Excited and humbled that he keeps choosing to live on my porch every summer! Last fall, he didn’t want to leave. It was getting very cold and I wanted him to go hibernate in the mud like he is supposed to, but he wanted to stay in his cozy spot, so I ended up moving him and the pot he lived under then, down into the grass under the porch. He eventually burrowed into the mud for the winter and came back to that pot at first this spring, but he’s decided he likes this one better 🤣 I have a couple other pots like this, so my mom and I are going to make little frog houses for his friends, too, and place them around the yard. 💚 🐸🪴 #BennyTheTreeFrog #NatureGeek #PetsAndPlants #GregGang #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #SoDoAnimals #HappyPlants

Happy #WhatTheSuccWednesday! I’m really late with my post today because…life. I’m sorry if you were waiting on pins and needles 😂 I kid. SO, I have a lot to report this week! 1&2: My #GhostPlant cuttings are REALLY rooting! 👻🤗💖 I credit the Grow formula from #WetheWild . It’s an Australian company that recently made its products available in the US, and I can’t say enough good things about this stuff! (NOT sponsored but I wouldn’t turn it down! I want to try every single product now!) 🌱 It’s concentrated worm castings and my plants are all producing like I’ve never seen. And rooting is taking half the time it usually does! Which brings me to No. 3: my #TigerToothAloe which lost all its roots back when I was a #Succulent newbie and didn’t understand correct soil mixes, ratios etc. I’ve had her in water and she starting growing her roots back immediately, but as you can see, it’s really taking off now! In No. 4, my #TaciveriaTasha is blooming, which is always fun 🌸 and in No. 5 (I might be cheating here, because I don’t think this counts as a succulent, but I’m so excited I have to share!), I took a leaf cutting from my #KenyanViolet and stuck it in water 2 months ago to see if it would root. Now, not only are the roots numerous and thick, but look at the baby plant starting to grow! I immediately planted it in loose soil and can’t wait to see what happens next! I have one more fun update in the comments (darn 5 photo limit!😂) #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #PropagationStation #SucculentLove #PlantTherapy #SucculentSquad #Succulents #AfricanViolet #RootPorn #Aloe #PLANTMAFIA #Propagation
