Like many other gardeners, I love my succulents.
Not sure yet what kind of winter we’ll be having so I’m beginning to pull in the plants I want to keep for next season.
For the first time, I grew some Lithops this year. (I guess I should add that I purchased these at a nursery and by “grew” I simply mean that I didn’t kill them during the past 6 months or so.)
The Graptopetalum pentandrum ssp. superbum I actually purchased last year at Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco and it has been a lot of fun with its unique coloring. (Obviously, the photo above overemphasizes its purple hue.)
As for the Lithops, I must confess, they didn’t completely escape my neglect. I feel badly they split a bit, but I will take better care of them now.
Currently indoors in the plant room, I expect they’ll be quite happy here in the window where it’s much warmer and drier during the winter months.
