What A Nice Little Succulent

Growing succulents from seed in my apartment in Brooklyn.
Saw some very happy looking Opuntia at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden today.

I’m still enamored by leaf prints on Agave plants. These from the New York Botanical Garden.

Very tall flower stalks on my Haworthia truncata! And a detail of the flowers.

The flower stalk on my Haworthia retusa has gotten quite long, and bends toward the light.

My Haworthia retusa is flowering too!  It’s not the most impressive flower, but I’m still excited that it’s happening!

Ten month old Conophytum sprouts are pretty weird little plants.  The darker green one in the top picture used to look like the lighter green one, but new leaves emerged from inside, you can see them starting to show in the center of the light green one.  The bottom one looks like a big pea.

Cacti are nearly 10 months old.   Many of them are dull brownish green, but they have different shapes and spine pattern.  I just took them out of their plastic bag terrarium today and am hoping that they like finally being exposed to the world.
