Lola

So believe it or not, this is the same exact echeveria known as “Lola”. She has finally reached her popular powdery pink/grayish color. Just amazing to see!!! I included two of her early photos. She was very young at the time of those photos, which is why she looks smaller and so green. Baby photos:

Treat Yoself

This month has been a “pain in the butt” kind of month. In all honesty, it’s been quite a lonely month as well. Baby succulents are still in the process of propagation, so not much work is needed. Fall has come near, so the succulents don’t seem to drink as much as they once did….

My Little Baby Ivy Terrarium

I’ve had this mini terrarium for months now. I had a baby Ivy plant and just thought she’d look cute in a small glass jar. Of course this isn’t fancy or ridiculously decorative like other terrariums of mine, but the progress itself is remarkable. With other terrariums of mine, it usually took months and months…

Good Morning, Baby Toes!

It is just lovely to wake up and see that your plant is going into bloom. It’s definitely happening with many of my succulents at the moment, so get ready to be bored with blooming posts… But there is just something about it that I love. It isn’t necessarily the “peak” of your plant’s life,…

This Mysterious Lady

I came across this plant, nearly dead at a local nursery. I still don’t know what the name of this plant is, and I’ve never seen anything like her in my life. So if you know her name, feel free to comment and let me know! I asked if they would discount her, since the…

Mealybug AND a Spider!

I had written another blog post, in which you can find here, about all of the webs on my brand new succulents. I had to spray them all down with my essential oil bug repellant (for plants) in hopes to protect them from bugs. However, I woke up from an afternoon nap to find brand…

Unexpected Babies

As a lot of you know, I’m always propagating my succulents. Especially when there’s that “once in a blue moon” dying succulent. But every once in a while when I’ve taken a break from propagation, I’ll find these little cuties hiding behind their mamas! It may not be scientifically proven, but I feel like fallen…

Making Himself At Home? Not Today!

So I woke up this morning and found out that there was a problem. My brand new Echeveria has become a home for a tiny spider – possibly spider mite -overnight! Literally, overnight!!! I didn’t want to rush into anything crazy, since the webs are not nearly as thick as what you are seeing in…
