Blooming Succulents and Cacti

Awesome Remodels 10.04.14

    If you can get succulents to bloom indoors, Debbie, you are definitely doing something right. I love the contrast of the delicate bloom and the very spiky Mammillaria.

    My mother in law has some catus that she overwinters outside. She has offered some in the past but I didn't take any but now I can! :-)

    .... I'm happy to hear that they have survived and are now taller. I was worried about mine because we have had nothing but pouring rain all summer every other day... I don't get enough sun
