New Additions

As posted last January I have been using this propagator in the conservatory.


Unfortunately it has been a disaster for growing my miniature orchids in.
It worked well in the cold weather with its heater keeping plants snug and warm.
Came Summer and even with plenty of ventilation and shading it got too hot for them.
I lost a few and others are suffering badly. Some may recover with TLC.

What did thrive were my Lithops (living stones)
Some so well they are due for moving to larger pots.
I have decided to add more succulents and one spineless cactus.

My latest arrivals (all in 3 inch pots)

Sedum Rubrotinctum

  1. These are fascinating but I could kill them within a week.

    1. Adrian: I seem to take a bit longer to kill off plants!

  2. Great succulents. the Sedum rubrotinctum looks like a jelly bean plant. Hope your orchids recover.

    1. Wilma: Jelly bean plant does seem to be its common name. I'm a bit puzzled by the orchids. There seems to be some rot though I am careful to keep watering to a minimum. I'll try repotting them in fresh orchid media.

  3. Living stones are great. Might get some!


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
