|Fleshy Succulent Plant|
|Bunch of Tiny Red Flowers|
Succulents are easy to grow but I have not had much of luck with them and finally have decided to keep buying succulents till I get the right growth techniques and formula for flowering!. The ones recently added to our family are near dying maybe because of the direct sunlight they face over the terrace garden. I have tried something different by placing the pots on the outside window sill of our Kitchen window so that they receive indirect sunlight from early sunrise.
Bit I guess they need sunlight also to grow healthy. As for watering, the rains, unexpected during last month have done the damage.The succulents plants have fleshy leaves . The growth patterns was similar to the early succulents bought over the years. Fleshy green leaves in different green shades from light green to greyish green to dark green , oval shaped, tear drop shaped or round shaped growing in circular pattern.
The flowering also quite similar fashion, a single stem comes up with bunches of tiny flowers, what is different and unique each plant gives different shaded flowers. I am so fascinated with the beauty of these succulents, vermillon red flowers look great against the greenery of the garden.
Two beautiful flowering succulents one with vibrant vermillon red flowers and the other with peachy pink flowers, growing in the same style, fleshy oval shaped green leaves, the elongated stem coming up with tiny vibrant flowers growing in bunches.

Sunlight is a tricky aspect, as I have learned, too much and the leaves dry off and less the plant goes mushy and stems falls off.
These plants after flowering are nearly dead, or look so, and then gradually the leaves start coming as tiny greens , at this time when watered more or very less the plant dies off. Insects and bugs love this fleshy leaves plant, very common to see holes in succulents plant leaves.
The roots are very less and the plant does not grow deep so it also falls off from containers with its own weight.
The good part is it succulent plants do not die easily the tiny stems also start another new plant when given the right conditions and soil for growth.
People boast of succulents as easy growers but i have not had much luck with them, The jade plants we have lost , and different calanchoe plants, though the last year one is still somewhere trying to pull off with tiny leaves. The beautiful healthy silver jade is what we have in two containers, beautiful grey colored fleshy leaves, each leave giving out tiny grey colored roses shaped leaves at the edge of a leaf. the beauty is that the leaf dangling over the pot also survives only on water and still gives out roots that grow side of the original parent plant, I have to keep it in place within a few days as this one loves to travel!
Enjoying full sunlight I hope this one recovers fast!
