Succulents and Agave

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The plants featured above include :

Echeveria ‘Topsy Turvy’, whose leaves look as if they are positioned upside-down.  Looking spectacular with its soft green curled leaves, it has produced a couple of new plants to the side of the pot.

A pretty pink Kalanchoe – just bursting into bloom – is spreading out in a small rock garden.

An Agave, whose leaves are spotted with marks from the tiny hailstones which fell a few days ago.

Dew covered Succulents

The temperature was about 7°C this morning, and I noticed that most of the succulents in my garden were covered with water drops. Apparently, when the temperature drops, relative humidity increases. High relative humidity of the air occurs when the air temperature approaches dew point value (in other words, when air is saturated with water). So the relative humidity must have reached 100 percent in my garden and as the above photographs show, everything was delightfully covered with dew drops.

Agave are a long leaved succulent plant that forms a rosette shape. They thrive in full sun and need minimal watering – our Agave is growing in an unglazed terracotta pot which is almost invisible from this angle. Small pups are produced which can easily be removed and planted to form new plants.
