"Thank God", the succulents cried...
OK, this is a sad story! I was out at my tires the other day and found 3 of these plants (everything except the purple one, Wandering Jew)laying in between some of the tires, on the ground. I had forgotten that a few months (I'll bet ya) ago, I had pulled them out because they were getting fried in the sun. They would be put in a pot and taken in the screenroom, but....it never happened...so all this time they were just laying there...in the shade. Then, when I discovered them, they laid around another two weeks waiting to get planted...THIS is the reason I love succulents...they tolerate so much abuse from me...but they LOVE me too!!! LOL
Anyway, I planted them in this clay pot today and added a peice of my neighbors Wandering Jew, and they look pretty darn happy, don't you think?
Sempervivum arachnoideum cv. 'Cebenese, or "Cobweb"
Could you have resisted this absolutely neato-groovy-cool plant??? There he was sitting amongst all the others...obviously a king among paupers. Although he felt happy, he cried out to be taken home with me, and made to be the king he really was! I repotted him, and put lovely stones all around him, and he is now the new King of Screenporch Succulentom, surrounded by his new "subjects". He is happy, and I am ectastic!!! This is a crazy love I have for all my babies!!! What is wrong with me...I must be going nutty in my old age!
