Collecting Driftwood

I found some cool driftwood the other day while I was rafting on the river. I collected it and loaded it up on my raft. I just knew they were going to make great succulent displays. I used crushed rose quartz and crushed purple amethyst as well as crystal quartz in each. I tend to use my little pups from my leaf propagations for all my projects with driftwood. I like to watch them grow in. Would love to see what everyone else does with driftwood. Feel free to share photos!

Donkey’s Tail Succulent

Donkey Tail Succulent Donkey's Tail Succulent Donkey’s Tail succulent or (Sedum Morganianum), sometimes called Burro’s Tail plant, is a popular and easy to grow trailing succulent. It is native to Mexico. This unique looking plant has long hanging stems. That are covered with thick rows of fleshy blue-green, tear dropped shaped leaves that overlap like the hair on a donkey’s tail. The stems can reach lengths of over 3 feet long. It is happiest when grown in hanging baskets or up high so that it has room to flow down and no one can accidentally bump into it. A Donkey’s Tail plant is very fragile and the stems break and the leaves easily detach and fall off of if disturbed. Donkey Tail needs careful handling. Read more about Donkey’s Tail

Mother of Thousands Succulent

This succulent can resist drought, but she will perform better when regularly watered. She does need good drainage and is best potted in a commercial cactus soil mix. The succulent needs sunlight but avoid growing in the full sun. Propagators will love this plant but it can get out of control if not tended to on a regular basis. Mother of Thousands forms tiny plants on the edges of its leaves that drop off and root new little plants.  more
