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.
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.
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!!
I am incredibly happy to announce The Succulent Manual is now available as an eBook on several eShelves including:
Sucs for You – With the option to add a custom care consultation!
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!
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.
