succulent

My Mom, who is an absolute green thumb, has always been a significant source of inspiration that feeds in to my gardening interest. Whereas during the week I would be so busy with work, the kids and their school, weekend mornings (while the kids are still sleeping in) is usually the time when I can slow down and spend bonding with my Mom to catch up on our shared interest. Past weekend, we went together to the local swap meet to look for potteries and urns for me to add to my front porch landscape. This swap meet has a good number of vendors who sell plants, from flowers to herbs, bonsai to exotic tropical fruit trees, and of course a good varieties of nursery pots and landscaping potteries. We’ve been told the vendors don’t get to keep the same slot every time, they draw their location from a lottery pool, so they move from week to week you just have to walk around and look for the vendors you know, or just browse through the different isles, that’s what makes flea markets and swap meets more fun anyways, right? What we found last weekend as we were browsing around was a new vendor who sells nothing but succulents and cacti, at an attractive price of $1 each.  Scored !!!

Here’s what I got:

Planted them into a shallow bonsai pottery:

Do you know what variety, name they are? They are gorgeous, aren’t they? Hope I can propagate more soon.

P.S.
Here’s an archive of videos related to how to plant and care for succulents and cacti that I have collected
