I think for a commonish succulent this is one of the most beautiful plants there is!

My girlfriend actually picked it out, so she kind of 'owns' it. I just baby sit it. But it truly is a beautiful plant.

Can someone please tell me why the ends are 'burnt'. I noticed it when I bought it last week.

Is there something i can do to prevent the ends from burning?

I have one of those and it's doing the same thing. Though I know the reason why mine is. It's because it got snowed on last year at my dad's place and I rescued a few offshoots to grow in my climate.

Could be a number of things, as I know you don't have frost or snow. I would say probably it was in a shady position and you have put it in a full sun position. Or it is not used to exposure to the elements and is a bit wind burnt etc., give it abit of shelter and it should come good.

Who would have thought I would have had information on growing a succulent Rolling Eyes

I feel so dirty, think I will have to go outside and have a look at some cacti ,lol

HAHA! Thanks trig... I will give it some tough lovin - it will harden up in the full winter tropical sunlight...

It gets afternoon shade, but not midday shade.

Well, we all know that all cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti!

I have a few euphorbias too (at least I think they are)... oh... here.. try this... what are these:


and the flower...

Trig wanted to be the moderator of this one, because he is SO into succulents - I had to fight him for the spot, and as you can see, he is right on the mark with the change of temp / sun. Give it a bit of TLC, some shade and it should come good.

My Dad tells me that the plant used to be called a wash board plant - aparently it mimics the olden day manual wooden washing "machine" scrubbing boards.

Hope there's not a message in there that your girlfreind's trying to tell you Very Happy

Yeah I secretly grow succulents for a living haha I even have secret society style succulent forum, but I can't tell you about that, it's highly elitist and oh so secretive, I don't even know the web address.

Anyways... you seem to be spot on with the euphorbia too... I think they're going to be onto you soon if you keep up this succulent game...

Damn! You've exposed my succulent racket. I will have to convert to Bromeliads now. Except I can't because I just told you I was going to, this could go around and around haha.

Yeah amazingly I actually have a E. millii, it looks like it's upper most growth has turned cristate. Looks pretty cool. Any of you succulent buffs know how I m ight propagate some of that crested section?

Can you 'pinch out' the growth tips to make the E. milii more bushy? Or do they look better long and spindly?

Anyone want to talk about the wintering watering habits of conophytum?

I've started now after an earlier attempt over summer which set them back.

Not sure? Mine is pretty much neglected. I think mine is a more compact form though. I believe there is many different forms available.
