I love to grow things from seed. Succulents are a passion. I live in a unit at the moment, but I try to make to most of the space.

@nej less scent is fine with me. Flowers set my hay fever off. Hence my love of succulents

#advice @latebloomer Frangipani's can be tough to root and even tougher to leave alone. I have found success with this way - Get a clean cut from the mother plant, try to get a cutting that is between 8 inches and a foot long. Then let the cutting end heal dry for at least 2 weeks. When planting the extra length will help with keeping the cutting upright. I planted this one 6 inches deep. Now the tough part. Leave it alone for 2 weeks. Then start to water once a week till leaves appear.

@latebloomer It would depend on the strength of the sunlight? I have a northwest facing balcony and it gets full summer sun in summer so i cant put mine out there, the succulents love it though. Frangipani's can suffer sunburn. So it will depend alot on if you feel your plant can take the heat
