Take a good look at this beauty.  And realize I have had almost nothing to do with how amazing it looks.  My mom bought it.  My mom delivered it.  My mom waters it weekly.  All I do is enjoy it.  I did not inherit my mother's green thumb.  Mine is black apparently.  Please note the little guy in the back.  Now that, I am responsible for.  Looks pretty good too right?  But, I must confess...this is my third attempt at keeping anything alive in that pot.  The two previous residents (both beautiful succulents at one time) bit the dust.  My thought was putting it near a thriving plant would give it the encouragement it needed to grow big and strong, and mostly just live.  I'll keep you posted.


  1. Succulents are the only plants that I don't kill. It's a good thing you have your mom taking care of those!

  2. i might have to send your mom my pots. This HEAT... i need it to stop. Most are hanging on but.. only slightly. I think your pot looks amazing.

  3. Mine are all dying and I don't understand why. It's drought conditions here so they should be just fine. I may have to transition to all fakes.
