Summer Update

It's been a busy summer for us in terms of planning projects and sales for the fall, so unfortunately I didn't get around to making any posts until now.

I've been preparing succulents and cacti for the fall plant sale, so expect to see a large variety of flora there. In addition to the standard Mexican sedum (Sedum nussbaumerianum) and aloe vera that we usually propagate, we'll also have Mother of Thousands kolanchoes, some plumerias, and an unknown plant that is either of the genus Hechtia or Dyckia.

And of course, I got some new succulents that we've never sold before:
A hybrid of numerous succulent species
Graptosedum "California Sunset"

 Here are some graptosedum succulents, formed from crosses between sedum and graptopetalum plants.

A light-blue Pachyphytum
A panda plant, "Chocolate soldier" cultivar with brown tipped-leaves
TONS of cacti
And the exotic dragonfruit plant!
The "unknown succulent" that is most likely in the genus Dyckia produced seeds in the greenhouse, which I planted shortly after harvest. They sprouted a few days ago, but it'll be at least a year or two until they grow to an appreciable size. 
The tiny seedlings are 2-3 mm tall
