Succulents grow quietly only to surprise me -- new pups and buds hidden between leaves, perfectly geometric shapes, etc. They're addictive ❤

If your 2yo pups are about 3 times wider than my index finger's nail, how old are you???😬

It’s very satisfying though - yours all look good. I tried some from seed a few years ago, still have most of them but it was a slow process - esp in uk climate, I have them indoors and they seem to take months to show any growth. Hoping this year I can finally pot them on and move them outside with the rest of mine.

These pups are the biggest ones grown from the seeds. Planted in early spring in 2020, so they're just over 2 yo 😍😘

Hi @lovestogarden. This is just an experiment. I mixed screened potting mix (3 parts) and coarse sand (1 part). Bottom watered the containers. Then, sprinkled fine sand on top, spread seeds, then sprinkled fine sand again.

Thank you @philstalder ❤️ I used to discard expired flower stalks, but this year, i wanted to know how their seeds look like. They're like dust 😄
