My babies!

I’m not sure what made me want to purchase four succulents from etsy one day, but I am so glad I did. I’m really terrible at taking care of them, but I’m learning a lot. And despite looking a little crazy because of my neglect and lack of knowledge on how to keep them healthy, I think they’re beautiful.

I originally had four but had to sacrifice one because it was growing completely out of control due to lack of adequate sunlight. First I chopped off the head, let it dry out and then planted it. Then I took the leftover leaves from that one and some from a couple of the others and I am attempting to propagate. It seems to be going well even though I’ve had quite a few casualties. Some have started sprouting roots and leaves or both.

This is one leaf after three weeks.

And this is the same leave after 5 weeks. Definitely making some progress!
