Succulent Update by Jesse Bluma

Succulent Update

My first posting on my new plants got a lot of interest.  Here is an update on how the succulents are fairing so far.  This succulent display was given to me one December as a gift.  Succulents are a great weekend project, interesting to learn about, and make a thoughtful present.  These plants come in unusual shapes and shades of green, with some flowering.  You can see they are doing well.

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 gardener or arboretum, for example The Fullerton Arboretum, can help you make the most of your propagating. 

It is essential to utilize the proper soil for you plants, such as Kellogg Garden Products.  Succulents, palms, cacti, and citrus require a certain moisture level, good drainage, and nutrients.  Organic material, nothing synthetic, is also beneficial to providing the proper medium for plant growth.
