These tiny plants transform themselves every fall.
They change from little rosettes to tall towers.
Most plants just throw up a stalk of flowers,
but this little succulent turns into a mama stalk.
I watched a bumble bee climb the flower towers over and over yesterday.
I do not know its name. I just call it “Ghost Rose.”
I hope a reader can help me identify this “All-In Mama.”
I found a group of tiny mushrooms in a pot of Haworthia.
Succulents like it dry and mushrooms like it wet.
But these two seem perfectly happy in the same pot.
I guess we must grow where we are planted.
I am fascinated by unusual plants.
Sometimes I buy them because I have doubts that they are real…
like Sea Monkeys.
Well here is one that has proved itself to be real.
This Life Saver plant has finally made a bloom.
For two years it has done nothing but sling little pieces of itself out of the pot like a self-purging cloner.
Finally it has a bloom.
The bloom looks just like the pictures.
Yes. It does look like there is a life saver candy in the middle.
Huernia zebrina, I believe!
