It’s cold and raining in Houston (as usual) but I really needed to work out my green thumb, so here’s a quickie video of me making a propagation tray. It was very calming — you should make one too! I’m using a cardboard crawfish tray and my succulent dirt recipe. I’m mostly only placing leaves that already have roots. The others are hanging out in a cardboard egg carton under my grow light.Continue reading “Rainy Day Succulent Propagation Tray”

I am moving to a new house and my BIG in-ground Aloe maculata is coming with! It’s 4-feet wide (+22 lbs) and I’m digging it up to relocate it by myself. Wish me luck!
Watch me rescue and propagate one of my favorite plants— a Kalanchoe tubiflora ‘Chandelier Plant,’ one of the Mother of Thousands.
