I picked up all the green pieces to put in storage for the winter and they looked beautiful grouped together in this plant stand.
This is the key to growing nice succulents – a moisture meter. The one on the right was given to me by my
mom about 45 years ago – it’s taped together. The one on the left,was purchased this year at Menard’s.
My succulents live outside in the summer on the south side of the house under two shade trees. They like bright indirect light, not hot direct sun. The cacti live on the southwest side of the house in direct sun which they like.
I did lose a 20 year old sea onion plant this summer due to heavy rain – my fault for not moving it but the rest of the succulents have been outside in the rain all summer. When I move the plants into the house in a few weeks, I will treat them for bugs.
