That's cool David, it's etiolated some, but likes it better under the grow light. They all do. I'll have to find a good place for them in the summer where they'll get better sun than where they were last summer. I have a full sun area away from the house but what about rain? I know they don't like to be too wet and I can't run outside all the time to move them accordingly. Really good quality/draining succulent soil? Maybe just keep them inside all year under the light? 🤯 lol

You can keep them inside. Mine was tall too and I cut it back, rooted again in water and planted it again

She’s kind of lost some color but she’ll bounce back. I’m thinking I forgot the coffee grounds when I replanted her.

I chopped her down about 3 weeks ago and rerooted her in water. Today she got her new pot and soil. She was way too tall and kept falling over. I did this with 2 other plants but they don’t have enough roots yet. You can’t touch them, you can see where I did, it’ll take a bit for that to go away

@emch it use to be kind of plain until I started putting coffee grounds in my succulents soil. @kelsey92 was right. Look it up her teacher knew what she was talking about

Looks great. I’ve been using coffee grounds (and banana peels/egg shells) for all my plants for decades. Conflicting reports on the internet but it works for me. 👍

So cool, I use banana peels for my roses, bury them around the stems. I also soak the peels in a mason jar of rain water, makes great fertilizer for all the plants🌱 @docthrill @philstalder @emch

Oh wow, me too. I got a book from Jerry Baker years ago. He was from Missouri I think and had so many natural remedy’s and homemade potions you could make from everyday household item for the garden. Gotta look for that book again. @crabby58
