    Thank you!

    Careful, they can get addictive!

    Which ones? Are you allowing the cut to dry a few days before potting up? Leaf propogation maybe?

      Yes leaf propagation. I did let them air dry to scab over before putting them in a gritty compost.I'm very impatient and probably didn't give them enough time to develop little roots before discarding the ones that didn't do anything.
      I know what you mean about them becoming addictive. I started with one plant in a flower arrangement which I potted up. I was impressed with it's hardiness and resilience and so I have started a collection. They are in my greenhouse and seem happy in there.

          Here's an Echeveria pulvinata that I grew from seed collected from my own plant..........

          The flowers are a different colour to the parent and are also more open. Here's a photo of the parent that was taken at a similar time of year..............

            Can someone please spell this plant's name in phonetics? I have no idea how to verbalise this pretty plant name. Thanks in advance, CL

                  Can vouch for the addictiveness of succulents....esp echeverias and aeoniums :)
                  Prob much faster growing than many realise too:smile:

                    Got two here that have not formed any offsets in over a year, but I tend to like the compact form of growth.

                    This one has been slow to pup, but not sure what is going on, the pup doesn't look like the parent.

                      It looks like E.runyonii 'Topsy Turvy' which is slow to pup. It will start to look like the parent as it enters puberty!

                              I'll see what it does, form a stem possibly?
                              Flowers next year at the earliest I'd think.
