Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

#advice #help it looks like the stem on this #echeveria #secunda or #pinwheel is rotting but I want to save as many of the babies as I can. They haven’t got roots so I don’t know the best way to save them. Anyone got any ideas? #succulentsunday

You could try taking off the tiny pups and after a few days pot on to gritty compost, it doesn't look very good on the stem so I doubt it would be worth keeping the stem to see if it sprouted new pups 🤔 I've just lost my beautiful echeveria Cante to rot, I wouldn't mind but the compost was completely dry 😣

@angiecrazycatlady I’ll have a go and see. Got a feeling there’s some thrips in the compost too! 😏

#advice This was a cutting that I planted a year or so ago but has become very etiolated and is now bending all over the place! I’m thinking I should behead it and start again? But not sure where to cut it? Any ideas or other advice on what to do with this #echeveria #secunda or #pinwheel #succulentsunday 08/09/19

Cut it a few inches from the top, then pull off the lower leaves gently so you have the rosette and a stalk underneath, then let it dry for a couple of days, then pop it into some gritty dry compost. The plant thsts left over could be cut back a bit and possibly may start shooting out new pups. So font throw it away. Plus when you get those dry leaves on a plant always pick them off as they can cause rot and mould. Hope that helps 😁

Brilliant. That’s a great help! And I never thought about keeping the stem after I cut the top off! 👍🏼 @angiecrazycatlady @dantolomeo

Hi! I think your plant is Echeveria Pinwheel. 😊 http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=48&aaID=2&aiID=P&aID=1184 - it resembles secunda but for the pink tips which is now becoming evident.

I have a rule that if a plant doesn't do well after 3 years it has to go but these ones only lasted a month 😅 They're too picky about watering and light levels for my liking. I ended up constantly checking if the soil is dry enough and carrying them in and out of the house to sunbathe them 😥

Urszula, I just tend to neglect them a bit! I don’t pander to them!! 😂😂 my kitchen, downstairs loo, front room and spare room windowsills plus dining room floor by patio doors are chockablock with plants, some of which, others would have thrown out!! My OH would do too if I turned my back!!! He’s already stopped me filling the bedroom and main bathroom with plants!!! They’re the only inside spaces left!!! 😂😂😂 @ublaszko

😂😂😂😂 I'm the opposite, only have 1 houseplant left and it's hanging on by a thread 😅 My brain blanks out indoor plants even though I'm obsessed about the garden. I forget to water my indoor plants for weeks at a time and only remember about the last one standing because it's next to my cat's water fountain. So my brain remembers: water the cat, water the plant 😂😂
