#coffeewithsucculents time? Hey #Greggers please share pics of your lovely #succulents in the comments! #SucculentSquad #SucculentLove #Echeveria
My string of bananas seemed a little lonely this morningβ€¦πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
meet the gang!
Ahhh coffee with succs ❀️
My Crown of Thorns has new growth, can't wait to see this beauty bloom.
On the other hand my poor String of Dolphins looks terrible, I just don't know what to do with her, she's so leggy πŸ₯Ί
@Sassylimey my string of bananas seemed to really thrive beside my areoplanter… πŸ˜…
I haven’t slept yet so I’m up for #coffeewithsucculents πŸ₯Ή

Here are my babies πŸ’–
@Sassylimey does the SOD get sunlight? Does the pot have grainage holes?
@vvvelo yes she is close, about 8 ", from a west window with a sheer curtain. She's in a terracotta pot with drainage and in succulent soil mix 😒
@vvvelo loving your succulents! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
@Sassylimey hm…. I would inspect the bottom of the stems by the soil. There is may be something going on there. Also, I think those blinds on the window cover a lot of light. Have you tried to put them up during the day?
@vvvelo how do they look with plants in them?
@FirstCanna cool. I can see zebra plant in one of them. Do you have tall zebra plant?
@vvvelo no I do have a zebra plant but it’s not very tall…sorry the picture is so blurry I was trying to hurry before my robovac got me…
Good morning!!! I got a new succs this week....variegated crassula....and it is ready for #coffeewithsucculents πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
How is your week so far @vvvelo
Also.....what can I do about this??? My MIL painted my echeveria cubic frost....πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜­
@PlantEsteem is this Jade Moneymaker? I have similar plant. My week is going well. I’ve got a lot of new succulents.
Good morning! Everything is looking lovely! I’ve got another Lithops going to flower, I think!
@PlantEsteem oh 😳😳 i have never seen this before. I hope that Echeveria will shoot new baby on the side or smth…. πŸ™ˆπŸ™Š
@vvvelo I saw your posts!! So exciting. I got that guy at tractor supply....the tag said variegated crassula....whatever that means🀣🀣
@PlantEsteem does it have slightly fluffy leaves? If yes, then this is Moneymaker. You can see it in my oasis.
Me too....I am just leaving it be for now. I have 2 replacements on the way though...🀭🀭 @vvvelo
@vvvelo I give up what the heck is this thing?πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–
The leaves are slightly fluffy.....I don't have that pink like yours though! 🀩🀩🀀 @vvvelo
@FirstCanna what’s wrong? Are you guessing the name? πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ
@vvvelo guessing wouldn’t be the word… I am trying to figure out the name and failing miserably 😫😫😫
@PlantEsteem mine lost it pink color in some time after I bought it. Yes you have β€œCrassula money maker”. I do not understand how to get that pink edges back. It is sitting under cool bright growlight + gets some direct sun , but does not change the color.
@PlantEsteem it kind of looks like this… when I got this plant it was yellow and red and gorgeous now it’s blah!😒😒😒
@FirstCanna do you have more of this same kind in the pot or they are different plants? Tbh it is hard to tell what it is. It looks like pachyphytum and Echeveria.
Different plants
@FirstCanna could you post couple more pics of this plant from different angles please. Let’s try to guess it’s name together. Also, I hope @KikiGoldblatt can use her magic app to ID this plant.
Mine are just doing so well in their south facing window spot! Here’s just a few. Got my eye on a few online, but have no more room 😫.
What is the second pic? With the pink! Just love it!
@Roserade this is my new babe Sedeveria Pink Ruby
@vvvelo I’m slightly obsessed with it!!!!
Happy plants
@jakewhite333 very happy!!! Those flowers!!!🀩🀩🀩

It still looks green and happy @FirstCanna πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
@vvvelo I have it under a growlight...πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” we shall see where the colors go.
@jakewhite333 oh somebody is sitting outside, how cool ! 🀩🀩🀩
@kscape the second to last plant looks very interesting can you tell me what it is? Please’n Thank you ☺️
Good morning!! @Jana85 crushing the flowers this year!!! The lithops army is so pleased with your recruitment efforts! πŸ₯°πŸ€£πŸ€©
I can lift the blinds up, but need that sheer (it's a privacy issue 😧) I did just move her to that west window. I heard her in an east window but thought she might need more of that afternoon sun (filtered by the sheer curtain) @vvvelo
Hi Bro. @vvvelo πŸ‘‹πŸ» Sharing my new cactus and succulents. Love it! 🌡🎍🌡
@Sassylimey west window is sort of dark in the morning and till noon. I am telling it from my experience.
Yes I agree @vvvelo the west window isn't working. I'm going to move her back to the east side, or would she be happier under a grow light?
I need to rearrange and drop a light lower πŸ’‘β˜€οΈ
@Captjo very nice!!! Love your props...they look so good! 😍
@Hypsie love the succ shelf!!! I need one of these in my life.....πŸ€”πŸ₯°πŸ˜πŸ€©
@PlantEsteem thank you!
Already posted the two new ones in the last 3 pics from yesterday. Noticed the kolache is growing more. It needs to be repotted it seems. The pot is tiny so it’s needing water much more often
So cute!!! The little growth🀩 @SirLiquorice
@Ms.Persnickety it’s a Crassula Tetragona :)
Hi everyone! I've never had succulents before... so here are my new babies. Hoping for the best 😊
@PlantEsteem Thanks! It was here when I moved in! Outside & rusty. Nothing a little spray paint couldn’t fix.
@greenlikethumb They look great! Love those cute! 😍😍
@greenlikethumb hehe 😈 those pots omg 🀩🀩🀩 thx for sharing. They are amazing i
@greenlikethumb hehe 😈 those pots omg 🀩🀩🀩 thx for sharing. They are amazing 🀣
@Sassylimey I had the same issue with my SOD. Moved her from a west to a south window and she's recovering and filling in nicely. The south window is also in a place where I'm less likely to fuss over her...she prefers to be ignored for a couple weeks at a time.
@AmusingCosmo I don't have a south facing window 🀨 I stuck her under a grow light and I'll have to wait and see what happens
@Sassylimey my SOR and SOB are sitting only under growlights and feel good. I hope yours will get better soon.
Aaawww thank you @vvvelo. I put her under the grow light and hoping she'll recover!
@FirstCanna let’s say that this is Echeveria OpalinA. It looks very similar to it.
@vvvelo ok deal!☺️😊
@FirstCanna sorry misspelled it - Echeveria Opalina
@Sassylimey here is my SOb in its new pot (from dollar tree lol) I got this plant as a 6inch cutting
@vvvelo WOW that is gorgeous. I hope I can get my SOd to look like thatπŸ₯°
@Sassylimey does your SOD show any new growth?
Yes, but it's stringy @vvvelo
@Sassylimey I also think maybe you underwater it…. I would try to experiment: 1 - No water for one week or until the soil super dry. 2 - No direct sunlight for the same period of time. 3 - Water it as much as you can. Soak it in water. 4- Let the water drain out from the pot. 5- put the plant back to a nice bright partial sunny (or growlight ) location. 6- then no water until the soil is complete dry.
@Sassylimey look at this evolution of SOB
Awesome advice @vvvelo I will follow your instructions carefully - took a screenshot. Thank you so much I really appreciate the help πŸ₯°
@Sassylimey When I got my sob it wasn’t growing at all. Idk why. Then eventually it has started growing. I even cut it in pieces and now there are several independent stems in my pot.
