@cyndi @Zsazmeane @DonNotDonny @echeveriasstolemyheart @gjones Thank you all for such kind words! @kylers Don't feel bad about it, Kylee, it's good for them after all! Plus they've evolved the ability to regrow from remnants, due to being munched on in the wild. They're used to it, lol.

@columbiariver It can't hurt! I do it to keep them looking presentable, and the compact form also keeps them in optimal health (since it takes less energy to nourish a smaller body). @kylers Thank you, I utilize photo collages from time to time! @lauawill Spring cleaning, right? 😂

@lauawill It snowed here during the weekend as well, but I knew it was False Spring that we were dealing with, lol. It's not uncommon to see snow here in Michigan well into April, but I'm sure that the worst is over and it'll start to warm up again.

@mica1cs Do you grow your plants outside, Char? If not, it shouldn't be detrimental at all to give them a chop. They know that it's springtime, and they'll have the entire growing season to heal. 🙂

Huh, I didn't even think of that. Thank you! No, they're inside. Just by the window. I'll definitely do it soon. I'm planning on starting some for my mother in law and sister in law. Your plants are gorgeous!

Most of the time, my #echeveria-alfred cluster is inside of my little greenhouse, directly under the growlights. Today it gets to enjoy a better view though, as I remove its dead leaves and give it some water. 😘 #succulentsunday #succulent #echeveria #moonfairy #echeveria-moonfairy #echeveriamoonfairy #echeveriaalfred #succulentleaves #succulentmagic #greenhouse-growing

@matewe @Muzz67 @gjones Thanks, everyone! I've really loved seeing this cluster reach its potential these past few months. @QT I don't think it's impossible to find in your country, it could just be a matter of knowing which name to search for, and considering online vendors. Here in the US it's common enough, but stores don't sell it with a name at all, so people often have to look it up themselves. Easy to accidentally find, hard to intentionally find, lol. @lauawill Aww, thanks for that...

One of my minor goals this spring will be to tidy up my #echeveria-alfred cluster! It was actually jam packed inside of this pot when I first received it from California, but over the months each rosette has become more compact from the increased light that they've become used to in my greenhouse setup. Im going to give them a good head chop, and I think that I have the perfect pot for them. 😊 #succulents #echeveria #moonfairy #echeveria-moonfairy #echeveriamoonfairy #echeveriaalfred

My cluster of moon fairies is looking pretty good! Their leaves have been growing in more compactly than when I first received them, so my guess was that they weren't in very intense sunlight before. The greenhouse growlights have also brought out more of their vibrant colors! 😃 #succulent #echeveria #moonfairy #echeveria-moonfairy #echeveriamoonfairy #echeveriaalfred #echeveria-alfred #greenhouse-growing #wintertime

@richard.spicer.7906 Thank you, Rich! @natii I wouldn't have recognized it either. I had to squint to make sure that it was the right plant when it first came to me, lol. They've never given me any trouble, so I guess that I've just ignored them for most of this time... though I remove dead leaves from their bases every week, so I don't know how I missed this transformation, lol.

One of the smaller echeveria pups from my cluster of Moon Fairies. I recently cut and replanted them to keep them close to the rest of the cluster this winter (they have to share the growlights, after all!), and I hope that they take to the sudden headchop well enough. 🤞🏽🤞🏽 #succulentsunday #succulent #echeveria #moonfairy #echeveria-moonfairy #echeveriamoonfairy #echeveriaalfred #echeveria-alfred #greenhouse-growing #autumn
