Succulents or Space Creatures?
This succulent display was a gift to me. Succulents are a great weekend project, are interesting to learn about, and make a thoughtful present. Their interesting shapes make them look like space aliens on Earth. These plants come in unusual shapes and shades of green, with some flowering. Succulents are a good choice for those with limited time for gardening, bachelors, and those in planting zones 3-9.
You can begin your succulent pot from cuttings, using one species or a variety of species. If you take clippings from a plant, ensure that the tools are sharp and sterile, plant disease can easily spread. A good professional gardner or arboretum, such as the Fullerton Arboretum, can help you make the most of your propagating.
