Hi I’m new and excited to be participating in this community.

I have a few succulents but this one is my favorite.
wow it's quiet. @vvvelo you have anything exciting this week?
They’re so cute and fuzzy! I’m waiting to get a GH or set up so I can maybe get some of my own
Succ squad in the house!!!! I’m doing my first ever props with help from the succ squad on here. I’m so excited! We’ll see how it goes!!!
@jcPlantProper lol you need a greenhouse not for cold but to keep rain out πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
For #whatthesuccwednesday this week I'm posting my new Joseph's Coat. Thanks to everyone for helping me identify my new friend!
@LiquidRose84 oooo can we see πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€ or is it still too early?
@tmbryant37 yaaaaass we love variegated cactus!!
@RJG yes. The rain and the sun rays
@RJG I am at work already.
@vvvelo you don't have any recent succulent photos πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€
Today I’m celebrating the new growth in the Crassula pyramidalis that my friend gave me recently! I potted it with a pleiospilos since they’re both pretty tiny plants. I’m loving the textures!
@Jana85 those are cool!! And they look FABULOUS together!! πŸ˜πŸŒ΅πŸ’š
@Jana85 omg I just got @oldfatslow a pleiospilos for Father's Day any tips??
@saatwood thank you! I really love the weird succs! And I’m eagerly awaiting the three Lapidaria margaretae I ordered from Etsy! 🀩
@RJG I own three of them and they seem to be very slow growing. I have them planted in super gritty soil (probably 80% grit) and I only water them when the inner leaves (or the two big ones on this particular one) get slightly squishy like a gummy bear. They like full sun but they can get sunburned if they aren’t used to it. They absorb old leaves as they make new ones, but they can have 3 sets of leaves at a timeβ€”the third set should be pretty small and soft by then. I’m not an expert on these but so far, they’re still going. The only succulents I’ve ever actually killed were two Lithops because I watered them not knowing the night temps have to be cooler than 67 degrees to do that.
My Giant Blue straightened up a little bit, so that’s exciting lol. And I posted about my gorgeous Prickly Pear earlier this week! I’d post another photo of him, but it’s raining πŸ₯ΊπŸŒ΅πŸŒ§
@Jana85 so they're not as specific as lithops though?
@saatwood this is awesome Skye! Hope the prickly enjoys the rain!
Also this happened. It’s not the right time of year for splitting, but I think this one did because it has two heads in there. You can barely see the second one under the leaf. I’m concerned it split in summer but psyched it has two heads! I got this from a garden center that overwatered it, so that may have upset it’s schedule. But I think it’ll be ok.
It's an arrangement I made some time ago
@RJG oh goodness no. Treat it like any succ but with very gritty mix and don’t be afraid to go 3-4 weeks without watering it.
@Jana85 I saw this when you posted it! It's so cool!!
@moonstone that's awesome Nadia! How's your week going?
@Jana85 good to know!!! @oldfatslow read up Dad πŸ‘€
@RJG I’m not gonna lie, the Lithops still scare me a little, but they’re not as difficult as I thought they’d be. 😁
@Jana85 I'm gonna get one soon. I can feel it in my bones.
Hope I don’t get kicked out for this one, but… here also is my peen cactus. I get a chuckle out of this one. He had a battle with some kind of fungus that left brown scars all over him, but I still think he’s super cool. He’s a monstrose type of cactus.
@RJG it’s still early, but vlad and I had a long convo about it under #PropagationStation
Don’t mind the gross rag and chopstick
@RJG semi succulent and hardy madagascar species
@RJG can I please ask for advice on greenhouses and a heater? I need to put one up in my garage in prep for the winter. If you can email me at or Email me at (that’s a zero at the end of my name) I would appreciate it. I won’t abuse your info. That’s not my style or we can do it here. Whatever works for you. I’m going to the Wild roots nursery the first second Saturday of July too. Wanna come?
@Jana85 I want to get a penis cactus so bad because I feel like it’d always give me a good laugh when I looked at it πŸ˜‚
Overhead view from my deck on the second floor of my succulent collection. The table under the covered patio is housing my delicate ones that don’t like so much sunlight. πŸ˜…
@RJG I seen there is another timetraveler on here to add to the group, seen her the other day!!
@FitSedum I’d have to heat my greenhouse for several months of the year, so for me, grow lights indoors are a more economical option. But, I have a greenhouse and I move my plants into it in spring when there’s still a risk of frost, and I heat it at night with a propane tent heater. That’s just a temporary solution for transitioning from indoor to outdoor each year, though. some of my Hoyas are putting out new growth along with Brazilian Prickly Pear and zig zag cactus!!!
Hoya Kerrii
Hoya Australis "Lisa"
Hoya Crimson Queen
Brazilian Prickly Pear
Euphorbia "Zig Zag'
@saatwood that’s exactly why I got it πŸ˜‚ It’s a conversation starter, to be sure. Lol
@FitSedum massive collection!
@FitSedum I'll email you shortly at the gmail if you wanna delete your email. Idk if you care. (We need get DMs up)!

That backyard oasis is amazing!!
@Jana85 @saatwood yah the penis cactus is on my list too!

Omg @Gordo @OKIEgrnthmb found another #timetraveler @jessiefell !! Also looking good on the Succ Amber!
#WhatTheSuccWednesday #BloomingSuccs #NewGrowth finally got some awesome action on this guy!
@Jillysavage that's an awesome rosette Jill!
@Jana85 Ahhh so gorgeous, I love how it looks like herringbone or a braid!
@lemrobs me too!!!! It’s packed so tight! I really want to get a Crassula Buddha’s temple, too, because it’s like that but big!
I don’t have all of my succulents but here is what I have.
@KikiGoldblatt we are so glad you got some of them back!!
Good morning and happy #whatthesuccwednesday! My string of hearts is doing so well! It's giving me a phallic flower! It's so cute! The head is purple and fuzzy if you look closely. I just stare at it 😍 #succulentlove @KikiGoldblatt loving your new succs! πŸ’š
