My 'FIRESTICKS' Pencil Cactus is now 2 years old. Putting it outside for the Summer has made it double in size. It will come in the house soon and have a Winter spot in my south window wall.

This is another succulent from last year. I call it 'Flapjacks'. It has also doubled or even tripled in size. I took about ten cuttings from it this Spring and started new plants. I even put ones that fell off the mother plant into my perennial gardens. Now I need to get them out of the garden and pot them up.

Lark, your succulents, are more than fantastic, and what a display.
The next time you take cuttings from your jade, please keep me in mind.........John

Sure John, I will keep you in mind. I will be transplanting and root pruning it soon and I am SURE that I will loose a branch or two. How do I get it to you?

Thank you all! Succulents are sooooo carefree. I just have to find a spot in the house for my Wisconsin Winter.

Here are a couple of succulents (I don't know what kind) that I planted in a small collinder and a very large collander. I lined them with landscape fabric and all the holes in the collander are PERFECT for drainage. The first and third pictures are taken in Spring and the second and fourth pictures are today in the housed, south facing window.

Can someone tell me the name of the succulents in the collanders? When they are outside the color is almost black. Also, they are now getting ready to flower and I would like to know does the plant that has the flower die after flowering? The hens and chicks that are hardy in my zone 4/5 garden die after flowering, but there is always PLENTY of babies to fill in the dead MOTHER PLANT. These succulents in the collanders are NOT hardy in my zone 4/5 garden, are they TROPICAL hens and chicks?
