This Weeks Updates 🌱
‘Mochi’ silver dollar jade- she has recovered well from temperature shock, lighting changes, dehydration and even a mauling from my cat olive… his twin hasn’t recovered so well but it’s still in the pot, receiving the same rescue plan, but hasn’t improved yet. Hopefully that will change soon..but for now mochis big brotheris growing new leaves, & is back to his normal self. They are slow growers so I was so sad when they got assaulted by my crazy kitty. 😅😫
‘Melonie’ Sedeveria blue burrito- I love how she has filled out and grown! Her color range is beautiful, and her growth pattern is so satisfying 😍🧬 sedeverias are underrated in my opinion! Funny story my boyfriend clawed this plant out of a dying arrangement at walmart… so technically it’s rescued not proplifting…either way it likes it new home so no damage done 😳🫣.
Bubbles ‘Pachysedum Ghanzou’- she is part of the newest group of #Succulents I got a few weeks ago, I really love her leaf shape, and the uniqueness of her variety. I didn’t know of the ‘Pachysedum’ variety until coming across this hidden jewel at Home Depot! They’re are only a few Pachysedum varieties, & Ghanzou particularly displays a beautiful range of colors, as well as a strinking bloom. I repotted with bonsai jack, & added succulent soil mix to that. She seems to be liking it so far! 🤞🏻🪴
‘Demi’ Silver Teaspoons- I found mealy bugs on her last week, and I have treated with insecticide">#ArberBioinsecticide & fungicide">#ArberBiofungicide which I really recommend for overall plant protection/health. I haven’t seen any more mealies and she has new growth too.
‘Okie’ crowded Haworthia- this was a gift from @Lifeis2short 😊 it has some new growth, but I’m still trying to learn its habits. I don’t have it directly under my grow lights, but I can’t tell if it’s still too much, or not enough. And I also have a hard time determining when it’s thirsty and not? Any suggestions? #Haworthia #SucculentSquad #NewGrowth #GrowLights #GrowingSuccs #SucculentLove #Succulents #Succulent #HapPlants #PlantAddict #GregGang #GreggersSupportingGreggers #Sedeveria #Kalanchoe #Jade #Crassula #Pachysedum
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 month ago
Haworthia is thirsty when concave is less concave and convex is less convex (of the leaves). It's a very subtle difference. It's the same with Athena: more plump with smoother groves, or less plump with more distinctive groves.
@SvelteKingfern I feel like it’s more concave , but it’s kinda hard to tell
It is hard to tell. I've been observing Athena for a while, till I learned.
You can also weigh the pot. (whether more or less water in the pot).
@TidyTigerpear I haven't noticed any real signs of when it needs watered. But I don't have time to sit and stare at my plants all day either lol. I generally just water it when the soil is completely dry. And from the picture it looks like it could stand to be closer to the grow light. But I could be wrong. A couple branches on the mother plant have grown horizontally like yours (though not from the middle) and I had it in mostly direct sunlight all summer. Too much light though will bleach the leaves though. I learned that the hard way
@TidyTigerpear and hey if anyone is caught proplifting, it would be boyfriend and not you. 🤣 thank you for sharing with us!
I love the copper spoons plant and what is the name of the last one in the last picture?
@clairsheart thank you! & crowded Haworthia 🪴
