Last year my haworthia had one flower stalk when I bought it. This year it had eight!

@Alcurtis93 Haha! Well, I gave it some fertilizer this spring and I sometimes water with my fishtank water as well so it gets extra fertilizer from that too!

Ah I never fertilise my succulents. Probably why they don't flower ha. I'll get some tomato food

@Alcurtis93 I usually dilute it some following the directions for houseplants. Also, I repot my plants occasionally too because they get root bound. I usually see plants take off after a good rinse of the roots and a repot!

My succulent plants haven't given me any flowers.

@mardel i was looking through some of your plants. The echeveria will definitely bloom at some point. Try checking to make sure they aren't root bound, try fertilizer. Sometimes they don't when they are young. Also, I live in the desert so it's like optimal weather for them.

@Frankenstank I have repoted them earlier this year and I fertilized them 2 months ago, should I give them more, I use tomato plant food?

@mardel You definitely can. If they are babies I would definitely dilute. For all my succulents I use 24-8-16 all purpose fertilizer and do 1/2 tsp per gallon. It should have the ratio somewhere on the box you have. Yours may be different.
