Hey #DMVGregGang , if you want to buy more succulents then it is time to go to Home Depot at 7 Corners. I stopped there today and saw a lot of new succulents there. #SucculentLove #SucculentSquad
@vvvelo I say go for it! Lol but I’m an addict so you may not want to listen to meπŸ˜‚πŸ€—
I need succulent school from you! I am the worst with succulents!
@vvvelo our Home Depot doesn’t have anything that hasn’t been overwatered. They don’t take care of their plants at all.
I want more plants, but I seriously cannot fit any more in my house. πŸ˜† Signs of an addict.
Hmm, maybe I should stop on my way home from work today πŸ€”
@KikiGoldblatt some of them were overwatered in the HD yesterday too.
@Jana85 put your hands into your pockets and repeat after me: β€œI am strong. I don’t need more succulents/plants. I am strong. These hands won’t touch new plants at the store today.” Repeat this procedure everytime you go to a plant store πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
@tmbryant37 you may find a beautiful Pachyphytum Gandzhou hybrid there.
I am not familiar with that one so I had to Google it, lol. I love the colors and the shape. It looks sort of like jelly beans on a stem ☺️
πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ’š
@vvvelo I found two nice ones at my Lowe's tonight!
@vvvelo 🀣🀣🀣 But I am not strong. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I must just avoid stores that sell plants. 😁
@tmbryant37 oh oh 🀩🀩 They are beautiful 🀩
@vvvelo Thank you! I love the lavender shades on these, so unique 😍
@tmbryant37 those meaty leaves πŸƒ remind me fingers lol.
@vvvelo They really do! This weekend I'm going to pot them up. Do you think it's okay for me to put them in the same pot, or should I leave them separated?
@tmbryant37 yeah why not! They will look like a nice partners in one pot
@vvvelo That's what I'm hoping for. Just hope they get along and don't pick fights with one another 🀣
@tmbryant37 hahahaha 🀣
@tmbryant37 I am still trying to recover this pachyphytum werdermaannii. He does not want to drink πŸ₯€
@vvvelo The poor thing. Hopefully with a little light and a little time he'll figure out that you're trying to help him. Did you take a petal to propagate just in case?
@tmbryant37 he lost a couple of leaves, so I’ll try to propagate them
@vvvelo I got those new babies potted up with a couple others that needed roommates. Lost a couple petals along the way so we'll see if they root 🀞
@tmbryant37 aww :( Who Are those two guys at the top ?
@vvvelo I have no idea. They were marked as assorted succulents at Lidl and looked nifty so I picked them up. I've had them for a few weeks now and should have potted them already but I just didn't have the right one. Found this larger bowl type planter at Walmart and knew it was the one.
@tmbryant37 the guy on the right looks like Echeveria Lola.
@vvvelo Thanks! I'm hoping that it will flatten out a bit and grow more compact now that I can put it where there is more light.

Maybe I will post the other on Wednesday and see if someone recognizes it. The tips get a reddish brown color when it is sun stressed
