Succulents and house planting
« on: August 29, 2021, 04:49:19 AM »
My kids say this is a sign that I'm old and turning into my father... but the last few years (especially last year) I've started planting and enjoy propagating succulents. I've killed a lot of plants but do enjoy when I succeed every now and then.

My wife started doing those when the pandemic started. I had never heard of a succulent!  She hasnt done any for awhile. The Amish sell a lot of those and literally hundreds of places within a 30 mile radius to get them.

HaHaHaHaHa....Turning into My Father....Well I don't know how close to home that strikes since my Father was a Horticulturist, and I went the Jet Mechanic route, but I grow Spider Plants. It started when one of the little spiders got pinched off and I stuck it in some loose soil in a pot. I hated the idea of it just drying up in the sun. Well from that one little spider I now have them everywhere. So you are not alone.

They look good Jack!

Since I moved to S FL I haven't had any indoor plants. However I do have a backyard nursery with thousands of palm trees. crotons, schefflera, plumeria, corn plants, Bougainvillea, bromalaids, and other tropical plants. I sell large plants like coconut palms only locally, seedlings and seed for others on the internet. This year I expect to sell about 100,000 palm seed total. Right now is my seed harvesting season for some palms that make great indoor plants for up North like Dypsis lutescens I start shipping this week.  https://lab-14.myshopify.com/products/z-dypsis-lutescens-palm-seed-50-seeds 

Also grow food plants like bannana, plantain, mango, sour sop, jack fruit, sugar apple, papaya, and others. Pic of a Jack fruit for ya below.


While you folks up North can buy corn plants (Dracaena fragrens) at the local big box garden center we grow them in ground here and they flower and smell really good. I sell cuttings you can easily root.  https://lab-14.myshopify.com/products/copy-of-zz19-draceana-fragrens-massangeana-cuttings-variegated-corn-plant-usps-medium-flat-rate-box-full

Always have some spider plants and pothos ahahaha.

John, that's great, I love it. Checked out your website, car parts and seeds LOL.

Here is my grape vine that my father planted in my back yard about 35 years ago. It almost did not make it when I put on an addition to my house but I managed to save it.

And flowers that did not bloom this year. This was the first time I've planted flowers from seeds but some are just starting to come in now that the season is almost over. I'm not sure why, maybe because of all of the rain we got this year.

Jon, looks great and you are a busy person. Im with Jack, I like your site.

Jack, I am the last person on earth to talk about plants, but arent there some that wont bloom the first time around? Maybe they will bloom next year (unless theyre annuals of course).
I have a good customer that has a very large farm. They have a big lot that is grape vines. They even put a screen around them to keep the deer out. At one time he was making wine. Looked like too much for me!

Finally some flowers... but the rain killed them again. Today we are getting about 4" of rain and this is on top of the 16" we already got this year.

And this is the best I can do with the succulents, they root, and start growing but die soon after.

Do you have them in a planter that allows the water to drain out? Most don't like soggy soil. If the roots are rotting you're probably watering too much.

We only have a small box of succulents, but my wife put in quite a few whimsical gardens around our house last spring and summer when she was laid off due to covid. I may have dug a couple of the holes but the designs and all of the work are all Terry's. Yes my wifes name is Terry. We are Terry and Kerry (and we both have S as a middle name).
