    Thank you!

    Careful, they can get addictive!

    Which ones? Are you allowing the cut to dry a few days before potting up? Leaf propogation maybe?

      Yes leaf propagation. I did let them air dry to scab over before putting them in a gritty compost.I'm very impatient and probably didn't give them enough time to develop little roots before discarding the ones that didn't do anything.
      I know what you mean about them becoming addictive. I started with one plant in a flower arrangement which I potted up. I was impressed with it's hardiness and resilience and so I have started a collection. They are in my greenhouse and seem happy in there.

          Here's an Echeveria pulvinata that I grew from seed collected from my own plant..........

          The flowers are a different colour to the parent and are also more open. Here's a photo of the parent that was taken at a similar time of year..............

            Can someone please spell this plant's name in phonetics? I have no idea how to verbalise this pretty plant name. Thanks in advance, CL

                  Can vouch for the addictiveness of succulents....esp echeverias and aeoniums :)
