That moment when you pull a flower stalk off your plant thinking it's a bug... Whoops. Luckily there's another 2/3 coming up

For anyone who wants a succulent but finds when to water them difficult (me!) This is probably my favourite for very easily knowing when. Squeeze the leaf, if it feels rock solid and turgid then it's fine, when it starts to have a bit of give to it then drench the pot and leave it until next time. Once a month that tends to be for this guy but you can leave it months and it will still be alive no problem

Thanks @marlynroses I think it's one of my favourites. Just very low maintenance and it can handle full direct sun one day and semi shade another and it doesn't mind

@marlynroses mine has improved a lot since I bought it. Was quite dehydrated. Can see in one of those videos I sent you (the first one I made with the propagation)

I have a bit of an obsession with photographing this plant when the sun is out (very rare in the UK) Doesn't show too well in this photo but it almost glows

Like the look of this one! Is it easy to grow?

comment
Alcurtis93

Very @gjones It lets you know when it needs water as the leaves go from being rock solid plump to a little squishy then I just soak it and leave it until next time. It's thriving :)

It can handle a wide range of lighting too being a haworthia and it offsets like mad
