Unfortunately, I wasn’t as successful with the succulents as the Laidback Gardener was with his–see his post as all of mine have now died, save for two. I have one in the terrarium inside and the other outside on the lanai with the avocado seeds, which are now small trees. They are going to their new homes in a couple of weeks.

I learned a bit about succulents and perhaps that they don’t like me, and it’s okay. I always have my photos and the memories of trying to make them grow. I enjoyed them through the holidays and they were my gift to myself.

I am not sure what happened to the succulents but one by one they just withered and died. I don’t know if I didn’t repot them correctly, overwatered, or misted too much. But I decided not to buy anymore. I will keep the two that I have and we’ll see how they do.

We’re moving this summer anyway, and I don’t want to have to move a bunch of plants.

Here’s a picture of the succulent outside:

The terrarium pic of one succulent (and no, I do not even know what it’s name is):

I dropped one of my rose quartz crystals the other day, so I added a couple pieces of it to the terrarium too. The moss was brown right off the start, so the only green in there is the succulent.

And these are the avocado trees I grew from seeds:

One of the avocado trees has dropped some leaves and I hope it makes it. These are promised to two different friends. I have a couple of dirt only pots that a few succulents were in. I might start a few lemon seeds but then I’m done.

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.

  1. Good morning and thank you for the gardening adventure. The avocado looks over-watered, and something about succulents, similar to geraniums, you can grow them from clippings. Cheers!

    1. Thank you! It’s sooo hot outside though. And i have holes in the bottom of the pots. But I only give the avocado trees water once a week and not much at that. The soil is never dry though so I did wonder that. And when my sister-in-law asked if they needed water I bluntly replied, “No”!
      I am stymied about what to do for them.
