If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s basically a website that allows creators to connect with fans, and for fans to support creators so they can continue to produce content.
I love it because it gives me a way to reward my ‘patrons’ with different gifts and tokens of thanks. And since it’s not social media based, there’s a more intimate feel to the conversations taking place there.
For a limited time, new Patrons who pledge over $15 will get a complimentary copy of the eBook!
Patrons who pledge $5 or more receive priority responses to their questions! Just fill out this form or email me directly with your questions and photos. (Be sure to let me know you’re one of my patrons.) Our exchanges will be shared in a post on Patreon so everyone can so that others can learn along with us!

Hi friends!! I feel like I’ve been somewhat absent from the social pages, but I’ve been super busy the last few months putting the final touches on my eBook ‘The Succulent Manual’ and the online version. I’m talking tedious 12-hour days staring at a computer screen until I’m literally cross-eyed.
I also recently made a new video and just added some delicious drainage materials to the shop page.

You’ve probably heard the term ‘Mother of Thousands’ (or ‘Millions’) used for several plants by now. It’s a common name given to the varieties of Kalanchoe/Bryophyllum that reproduce by plantlets called bulbils that form along the leaf margins. Bryophyllum is another genus given to this type of plant, but it most commonly still referred to as Kalanchoe. Some botanists group Bryophyllum with Kalanchoe.
