I have taken a new-found interest in succulents, for some reason,
after pretty much ignoring them my whole life.
I've been transplanting some because I find they
outgrow their containers before I know it!
This is the container into which I transplanted today.
I got it last week at Tractor Supply, and I love it.
I really know how to style pictures, don't I?
My son Jim drilled two holes in the bottom, because, in fact, it is not really a
planter per se, but a "holder" for plant pots.
Because I was planting succulents, I was not too worried about leakage... but I did do this:
I covered the hole with part of this morning's Kansas City Star.
Here is what I have been using for my succulents.
Look at the roots when I pulled the plants out!
Here they are after re-potting... you can't see from this picture,
but there are baby aloe plants all along that center stem. I am going
to end up repotting this one again, I believe!
Then, I took the empty aloe pot, and transplanted this plant into it
(fresh dirt) as soon as it was empty. The leaves of this came off... at least, many did... and I stuck
them down into the dirt, and believe I will get a bunch of little plants off it.
Hope my friends are all wanting some succulents!
I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.
I am loving growing these... and am going to run out of space soon!
Do any of you grow succulents?
