I'm mostly into cacti, aloes, and other heat tolerant succulents, and more recently hoyas and some tropicals. Phoenix, AZ. USDA zone 9b, heat zone 11.

@sunlovin here's my most needly one. It gets full sun all day, plus reflected sun off the nearby wall. Please excuse the unkempt surroundings. This patch of yard is sorely in need of some attention.

It looks really good. Your needles are whiter. Yours is more green do you bring it in for winter? Mine has darkened in areas from the cold. I bought a little one because I figured some winter it will get into the 20’s and maybe freeze so I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I saw it happen to a neighbor who had a large one. But I thought I’d get one for fun if it wasn’t a big investment. How big is yours? @beatnikcrab

@sunlovin this one is in the ground, so there's no moving it around depending on weather. 😅 It's only about 10" tall and a bit over a year old. I planted a 2 ft cutting, and it rooted, produced this pup from the base, and then rotted and died itself. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I have a bigger one in a more sheltered spot that grows skinnier, and does have redder needles.
