Survivor

IMG_5946.JPG
I thought I had killed this poor succulent last summer. I have to admit I am completely ignorant when it comes to succulents. I have a tendency to over water and love them too much. This one in particular was a challenge because I thought it would want direct sunlight. It quickly browned and faded and I wasn’t sure what to do. That’s when I spotted the same variety on Succulent Life’s page and realized I was doing everything wrong. I removed it from the sunlight as it was getting sunburned. Then I forgot about it for six months. Six months later it’s starting to bloom and turn green again despite my initial abuse.

  • Glad it survived. My stunt is to leave them outside a bit too long in the fall, and then discover that, ooops, we’ve had a frost…a hard one. Mush. but if I get them inside, they get a bit scruffy in the winter but then recuperate next spring….til fall….:-)

  • Oh…hey! How have I missed this post??? WOW! What a great report on your beautiful plant! Great recovery!!! I am so happy for you! It is just gorgeous! Maybe you will have some babies soon! Thanks for the mention!
