Summer is Finally Here

We had rain for sooooo long here in N.CA, we kept waiting for spring, but it just went right on by us and we went straight to summer.  I’m trying to acclimate my plants to the heat and haven’t even acclimated myself.  I sure miss Spring, but I’ll take what we can get. lol

My succulents are multiplying faster than I can plant them. lol  No, I’ve done a lot of propagating and have had fun doing it.  I’ve discovered that the 2 in pots are great for tiny plants, as they grow, (which seems to be quickly) they need one much bigger.   I know you’re supposed to allow them X amount of room and too much room is not good for them.   With the change in the weather tho and getting them under lights indoors so late, I have a lot of potting to get done.  Not complaining, I still love it. lol

These are much larger than they were, but definitely need to be repotted.   Succuclents need a well draining soil, so I researched a lot and got several different recipes.    I tried a couple and I think I’ve finally hit on the right mix, at least I hope so, if not I’ll try again. lol

New carpeting will be put in on Thursday.  They came last Friday and it turned out the carpet was not useable so it had to be reordered.  In the meantime, we took everything out of the living room, dinning room and hallway, then moved it all to the patio.  The patio is all out in the yard and yikes!  It’s 100 degrees out there so everything is covered  with sheets so they have a little protection.    we’ll get thru this by the week end, provided there will be no more issues with the carpet. lol

Have a great week everyone.

  1. I’ve had 2 of those succulents in the past months and sadly they died. 😦 Maybe because I always forget to water them (even if it’s just once a week) haha. I’d love to have few indoor plants at home but I guess it’s not for me.

    Here’s hoping there are no more carpet issues! The plants look beautiful. You are becoming quite an expert in these little things. So you increase from 2 to 4 to 6 inches – and as big as it wants to grow? Or is there a maximum size they grow?

      Some, or most I should say, have a limit on how large they will grow, but they will grow baby plants on the underside of the plant. ( hope I said that right. Lol) some will get quite large, but as a rule it takes a good amount of time to get there. I’m in the infancy of my learning tho. Lol
