I'm an amateur plant lover in Calgary (4a) who got hooked on succulents a few years ago. Having fun learning and experimenting. Loving the challenge.

Aeonium Arboreum var.Rubrolineatum

This is my favourite plant of yours, looks like it fared ok after that horrendous hail storm you guys had last month. 👍🏻

@kylers thanks so much! This one is actually my favorite as well. And yes got lucky with the hail this was one of only 5 that made it inside that day.

Your welcome. We had a hail “warning” last week and I spent the morning trying to move plants as close to the house as I could. Brought in as many of my faves as I could and then waited. The storm never materialized but I was ok with the extra work. Keep posting those progress photos.

Post hail damage. One of the few I got inside but still took it pretty hard.

That's a shame! Did you get the same storm that hit north part of calgary?

@gjones unfortunately yes. Just the edge of it here. A little further NE and I'd prob need a new house and car right now.

I have 3 sisters who live in south and southwest calgary. They just had lots of rain and some flooding but they sent me photos of how horribly the northeast got hit. Hope your plants will recover😊

Lost almost the entire top rosette from sun damage. Fortunately the rest of the plant seems to be doing well.

Progress photo, the 'branches' are so thick and heavy now they're starting to break from the main stalk. She's just too lush for her own good. I'm going to have to find a way to support her but I'm not sure how...🤔

@kaigia outdoors seasonally. I'd live to leave her out year-round but unfortunately she's got to winter in the house.

Progress photo, I don't know if this is odd or not but this plant is extremely aromatic. Almost none of my succulent have a scent even when in bloom so I've always thought it was weird this one is so fragrant. Quite a pleasant smell too.
