My cousin sent me this picture of an aeonium I gave her last Christmas. She has had it in her screenroom and it has grown tall and thin! I think it may have been looking for more light! What do you think? It also started growing roots out the sides of the stalk, so it probably needed more water than what I had told her to give it...once a month! OK...yeah...my fault really...but now she is going to cut it off down low and try possibly rooting the peice she cuts off. Maybe with more water and light it will stay more compact. It was a fun experiment so far!!! Thanks for sending the pic to me, cousin!!!
Now these next two pics are a plant I have been eyeing for a year! I finally had my camera to take a pic today at work! The gal who owned it just casually said "Oh...I wish you would take that plant"! "I'm gonna kill it...and if you don't take it, I'm gonna get rid of it...so please take it home with you"!!! Well, I tried to argue with her and get her to keep it, but she insisted! I could not believe my good luck! This kalenchoe (? variety) has large leaves, and then is also surrounded by all the little frilly leaves! It had bloomed about 1 month ago, and I think the flowers were white. It was the sweetest thing imaginable!
I ended up giving the plant to a friend today, but I got about 4 cuttings off of it first! As soon as I got out of my car, I potted them up. So now it is just wait and see!
This last plant was a new one that same gal had! I was sort of hoping she would tell me to take this one as well...but alas, she did NOT! RATS!!! LOL. I think this may be a Hoya becasue the leaves are so waxy and thick! Each leaf on this baby was about 4 inches long and 3 inches wide!!!!! Lovely variegation too! I think I need one of these to be complete!!! If anyone knows if this is actually a Hoya, will you let me know??? Thanks!
