Wanted to give an update on Clive my Sedum Clavatum. 🌿🌸
I got him from Mountain Crest Gardens, about a month ago, when I got it, he had a bloom stalk that was pretty far along. It hadn’t yet formed the buds but I could tell it was getting there. Today it opened (picture 5) I haven’t gotten the photo of it fully open yet, but it finished opening this afternoon when I put him outside. (I will take another photo later and post in comments).
He also has grown a very teeny tiny offset, (photo 3) & had one larger offset when I got it. (Visible in photo 2). I’m so happy that he has been thriving since I planted him. Since he is a soft succulent, I was pretty nervous about caring for him, since I haven’t had the best luck with soft #succulents in the past. The flower is white, very small, & somewhat star shaped like most succulent flowers. It also has pink stamen or more specifically β€˜anthers’ inside the bloom. bloomingSuccs">#bloomingSuccs #GrowingSuccs #sedumclavatum #Sedum #SucculentSquad #succulents #succulentsaturday #SucculentLove #HappyPlants #NewGrowth #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #OutdoorGrowing #SpringHasSprung

Congratulations on your success so far!
@RefinedSandwort thank you 😊🌿🌸
Pictures of it fully opened 🌸😍🌿
@TidyTigerpear GORGEOUS!!! Congrats to you! And thanks for sharing these beautiful pics! πŸ™πŸ½That tiny offset is too cute! And the flowers are so delicate and lovely with the little pink!! I need all your tips on how I can *hopefully* get mine to flower too. 🀩🌸
@TidyTigerpear Here’s mine… no flowers… yet! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
@SunnyPlants wow ! So big and pretty! I can’t wait till mine gets bigger and more established like yours ! I think right now it’s there growing/blooming season. I’ve been keeping mine outside and it seems to like it. I had to bring it in for tonight though. Like we talked about yesterday the weather being crazy, it was 66 today but it may get to freezing temps tonight.. πŸ˜’ we also are supposed to get a lot of rain this week, which means we won’t be having much sun. But it wouldn’t surprise if that changed drastically by the time the week starts.. πŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
@SunnyPlants well as far as flowering, this one kinda was already in the works when I received it in the mail. I’ve only had two-three blooms that developed in my care.. I think one of the most important things is it having a consistent care schedule and also they all have different blooming seasons. Some bloom in spring, and other bloom in late winter. The blooms that developed for me, were the ones that I neglected the most, or just let them do their own thing lol. My Graptosedum Cali Sunset bloomed for me a couple months ago, prior to that I hardly watered it, or even looked at it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜« I swear succulents thrive on neglect & less care… that’s one of the biggest things I’ve learned. They kinda just like to do their own thing and prefer to be left alone πŸ˜…πŸ€£
@TidyTigerpear Thank you! This grew from a 2 inch pot! πŸ˜‚ I generally only buy tiny succulents as the price is right πŸ˜‚ and I really enjoy caring for them and watching them grow. 😊 I also put mine outside when the weather cooperates πŸ™„πŸ˜‚, which we both seem to have crazy weather, so we know that goes!πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
@TidyTigerpear Since I do usually buy these 2 inch succulents in stores, many times they didn’t have any tag with name, so I’d buy them and then try to poke around the internet to find out what their names were, so I could attempt to better care for them. πŸ˜‚

2-3 blooms in your care is awesome! I swear I didn’t even know many of these could bloom until I got on hereπŸ˜‚ and was like πŸ€―πŸ˜‚
So, this info about their seasons for bloom will be helpful! And I do agree with you on the neglect of established succulents. The bigger they are, the more I need to ignore them. πŸ˜‚
That’s so awesome that your Graptosedum Cali Sunset bloomed for you so easily! And beautiful blooms in those pics! 🀩 Btw just added that to my endless wishlist! πŸ˜‚
I love Clavatum. I have them into two different pots. I am thinking to put them together in one bigger pot.
@SunnyPlants your plant is gorgeous! Soooo biiiig 🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩
@vvvelo it’s so big 😱 how long have you had it for ?
@TidyTigerpear the one on pic for I got about 4 years ago. The second pic - I go t it I guess last spring.
@vvvelo wow four years !! That’s a long time. It’s very beautiful. Love the colors !
@TidyTigerpear thank you. My growlights make it looks this way. I guess it gets too much light.
Congrats the bloom is so cute πŸ₯°
@TidyTigerpear beautiful
@vvvelo I figured that was the cause of the coloration, it’s very beautiful. what kind of grow lights do you use ? Could you share a link?
@FitBrowallia thank you! πŸŒΈπŸ€—
@vvvelo Thank you! πŸ˜ƒ
Also really think yours is sooooo pretty! Those colors!! 🀩😍
@TidyTigerpear it is sitting under SpiderFarmer SF300.
@vvvelo How much distance do you have between the light and your plants?
@SunnyPlants about 20cm
Thanks so much! @vvvelo
