I live in Fresno California and have small garden spaces. Been gardening for a bit more than a year now and definitely have a green thumb. Look 👀

Every time I think that it can’t possibly get any bigger, it proves me wrong.

16 limbs spouted from the bottom half of a #cyclops stalk. When it gets bigger it’s definitely going to be top heavy

Cleaned out the dead leaves on this #aoenium-cyclops and finally got a solid count of limbs, 16 it lost 2 feet of the top of the plans. Instead of tossing it. I kept watering it and this is the final result. The top that broke of is also doing well. I did break off one of its limbs witch would have been 17 limbs. Stuck it in the ground and it’s done well too. Very easy to propagate

Wow @kimmy01 , very hardy plant. Instead of soil that drains and has a lot of perlite, use good all purpose soil and let it hold as much water as it wants. I water them ever day except in the winter, I let them dry out. From that point on any piece of it with the smallest amount of stem, I stick in the ground and it grows, with roots or not.

Me and a friend got the same plant from the same place and hers died too .... They had these funny furry bugs on I had to get rid of them but they would come back. Shame but I'm sure I'll find it again and try again 😊

This is a #throwback #picture. Early January, a Christmas present. Very tall but it had been neglected when @saguaro found it. It now is 2 plants because it broke in half, and both are amazing 😉

My third #succulentsunday post for today is the cyclops. Not a particularly colorful succulent but one of my favorites. It was broken in half and this is the top. It was twice as tall as it is now and has recovered amazingly well.

This is the bottom half of my broken Cyclops. It has started 14 new branches right at the break. Can you imagine what it’s going to look like 6 months from now. Can’t wait !
