Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

@beatnikcrab this pot is all of a foot tall; the vines trail at least another 8 inches beyond the edges of this photo. #succulent

Omgggggg, I LOVE IT!! 😍😍😍 Also the lil dino skeleton next to it. 🤣 Does it lose all the foliage yearly?

The skel is a relic of my days keeping goldfish 😄. Truth to tell @beatnikcrab the foliage dies back when I get lazy about watering and quickly returns when I remember...

Hahahaha, that's hilarious! 🤣 That's my kind of plant! I have some pregnant onions, but they don't seem to do as spectacularly here as I'd like. I had a big cluster of them that was doing well outdoors, but they were SO PARTICULAR about their sun exposure, and then they very abruptly cooked during the height of summer. I saved some babies, and then received some more in trade, but they're all being a bit unenthusiastic about life. I wonder how these would compare. 🤔

Oo, I'd never looked up their native range. You're right, they should do just fine! On my wishlist it stays. 😂
