time. I have never successfully cared for #succulents
. I have managed to kill three kinds (before the #plantita
craze started), all of which were owned by my kids. My eldest, @yohie_the_gamer
bought two from a couple of his high school fairs (I think back in 2016 and 2017) but we were not successful in taking care of them. The most recent one was a token given to @pwetpower
for bringing the most tetra packs for recycling. That died, too.
So... I didn’t want any succulents even when I went into full gardening mode with my #herbs
and edibles. Until my eldest asked for one. He was really taken with the succulent he got before, a #blackprince
. After seeing all the plants I have managed not to kill this time, he asked if we could find a Black Prince and try to take care of one again. My big kid almost never asks me to buy anything (except food) so when he does, I can hardly resist.
Crossing my fingers and asking all of you #succulentlovers
out there... please share tips on how to take really good care of this really nice plant (and of all succulents in general).
P.S. I wanted an #anime
related pot so that it would feel like ot was really my son’s plant 😅 and blend well with all his anime figures —- this #bulbasaur
pot is the closest one I could find. Personally, I think it’s super cute. Swipe ⬅️ to see it in all its cute angles. 💚
