Re-potted and Lovin' It!

I've been hard at work with all the gardening tasks I usually do in March and April. Though in theory, mesembs, cacti, and other succulents don't need re-potting very often (like, once every 3 years, if ever), down here in the almost-tropics, they really do grow when they're happy. And they pup, offset, propagate, and bloom like crazy! So repotting actually goes on at a slow rate all year, but most of it is in the spring.

Here are some of the collection in their new swanky digs, most of which are fresh from the kiln:

These cacti are nearing their first birthday, and growing well. They're out of their germination pots at last, and looking spiky!

And how did Babytoes II celebrate her re-potting? I'll give you two guesses, but you'll only need one....

And here's my favorite Senecio, the "Silver Spider". A new large pot (red earthenware with Aztec Turquoise glaze), because it's doubled in size in one year. Those almost-tropical breezes!

Repotting of the Lithops is continuing, and I'll be posting some pics soon. Have a great Thursday!

  2. Spent most of today re-potting, to make more space for new plants hopefully; I love it! Plants & new pots looking lovely! Gee that Babytoes is a happy thing. :)

    1. Can you believe these Babytoes?? Both of them bloom constantly, and both have doubled in size. They are real cheerful plants, everyone loves them. Happy Repotting!
