Plant Pests
E-Book

I can't resist them!

Getting them home and finding a new spot in your garden display or houseplant collection is the easy part - after a quarantine period in case of pests.

Finding their name and any information on them is almost impossible.

Succulent swaps are another way you may get new and unusual plants, or you may even have a 'legacy plant' which is handed down through your family.

Three of the most popular legacy or 'friendship plants' are Schlumbergera, the Christmas Cactus, Kalanchoe daigremontiana, the Maternity Plant, or mother-of-thousands, and Hoya, which goes by the common name of Wax Flower, because that's what the flowers look like they're made of.

Many people start with just a couple of the little plants commonly sold in supermarkets or corner stores, then have so much success with them, pretty soon they're picking them up all over.

The more you have, the more you want - in a good way, and luckily, these plants are easily propagated so you can feel confident that you can root your own succulents when someone offers you a cutting off their plant.

Identifying your mystery succulent plants will aid in finding out how to care for them and provide their preferred conditions.
