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”

After digging up my old garden because we moved, I finally got them back in the ground at our new place! (◔◡◔✿) Watch me work y’all! I also crack open some old kokedama balls and use the plants in the garden 😉 (Part of the video is in fast-mo)Continue reading “Building my new in-ground succulent garden in Houston, TX”

When shelf real estate gets tight, drill and hang your pots! I’m using a Ryobi One+ with a glass and tile bit.
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. It is a fast grower and gets so tall it can’t support its own weight. (We’ve been through this before…) It offsets from plantlets along the leaf-tips as pictured in the intro image.
Watch an unboxing from my friend in North Carolina- it’s her first time sending plant mail and she did a really great job! Thank you Kathy!!
Oh how I love my Aloe maculatas! In this video you’ll see a demo of removing some pups/offsets, progress shots from my A. maculata seedlings, and a few other neat features about this big momma!
