A review of a new hobby of mine based on the Laidback Gardeners’ post of a thorough guide to succulent care, that I guess I didn’t read thoroughly enough because three of my new lil babes didn’t make it. Ugh. I know. Sad!

I believe what I did wrong was that I’d been spritzing each succulent every day using a tiny spray bottle yet the directions said, do NOT spray the succulents! OOPS! I guess no amount of sun or me doing Reiki on these little ones were going to help combat my overwatering them. Darn.

Thankfully though, the survivors are tough! They are actually growing!! I’m so excited! And I was finally able to find a big glass canister too, so I can make the terrarium tomorrow. I still need to go find rocks and mesh, etc. to ensure I have the groundwork correct inside the jar before I put the new soil in and then transplant the succulents into it. I watched a great YouTube video on how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lg4tzkHgVo I just hope to find everything I need at a local fish store.

Here’s a recent picture of the succulents and I’ll post again once I get the terrarium going.

And yes, I finally got all the dirt off the big guys’ leaves too.

For now, keep pointing towards the sun and drinking your water! Wink!

Align with your soul and then, blend. That’s what I say.

Be open to receiving many blessings and always is my prayer for you every moment.

Omniscience knows ALL. Omniscience is always with you. You are never alone.

Be the best version of who you want to be–because if you’re reading my words your soul is probably beckoning you to align with it and live up to your highest ideals. Not perfect because who is perfect? Most stagnate or ‘get stuck’ while on their way to being whatever they think perfection is. Making progress is enough. Carrying your Karma lightly is enough. Be kind to yourself while living responsibly. Who you ARE affects us ALL. We Are All Connected.

  1. Live and learn as best we can. I’ve made plenty of garden mistakes, take my word! As for being perfect, heck no, that’s boring! Dance, sing, shout, do cartwheels, mess up, fall on butt, get up, try again, grin, imagine, fly ……. living can get messy and complicated yet through it all when we remember who we are, we open to the light and drink drink drink. You can never overwater with light. Except for those who prefer the shade. LOL

    1. Thank you, Amy! I love this on many levels. I built my first terrarium today and stuffed several of the smaller succulents in it. We’ll see how it goes! Ha! I’m going to get a new pot tomorrow and transplant the 4 larger ones into it. Glad the majority of the succulents are growing and doing well.
