There are several varieties of Crassula ovata ‘Jade’ plants and most are prone to developing white spots like these. Don’t worry though because it is simply excess salt mineral deposits being exuded by the leaves through their stomata (pores).Continue reading “White spots on your Jade plants? No worries!”

Here is the second round of many to come, I hope!

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.
From top dressings to pre-purchase tips, these are some very basic DOs and DON’Ts when it comes to keeping succulents happy.

Hello from Houston, Texas, Zone 9A! Spring is here in full effect and I’m really digging the sunshine. Tomorrow is April first so I’m going to include what plants flowered for me in March and what is budding or close to blooming in April. I’m also including some other notes on growth and dormancy. I keep my plants outdoors in pots and in the ground. There’s a lot happening right now…
