Many of you remember when I made this little cinder block succulent garden on my back slab. It is in partial shade, and most of these babies have never lived a happier life! The gasteria (none shown here) are sadish looking. I think they may need more water. I am only hand watering them about once a month. The soil retention inside the blocks is pretty darn good...only a couple have sunken down to where I need to add a few inches. Not bad considering it has been at least 6 months. Here are a few pics for your enjoyment!
