My succulents have been loving the winter sun - almost all of them are thriving, and some have even started to turn a little pink, which happens when they get a lot of sun:
See the withered leaves on the bottom? These were started from leaves pulled from other plants - you just set them on top of the soil and they grow from there and eventually root themselves, and you remove the withered leaves when they can easily detach from the new plant.
Here's a new set that I'm attempting to grow - these leaves broke off of another plant when I was repotting it.
Always in the midst of everything, Paco is.
Here's Marvia...and a very curious nose. Plant is named after my friend Matt's mother, who gave it to me when we visited her last August.
Better shot, although I couldn't quite get the pink on the edges to show up well in the pictures. This plant has done the best out of everything that I brought back from California, and I think I need to move her to a bigger pot soon.
I'm really enjoying my succulents and plan on buying some new plants in the coming months. While we don't see quite so many varieties in Texas as I do in California, I think I can find some different shapes and colors to add to my little windowsill display.
Paco finally seems back to his old self. On Wednesday, he was eating like a champ and even willingly went outside and laid in the sun while I trimmed some plants in the yard. Yesterday, he posed for a picture for his blog friends:
