succulent flowers

the utter madness of plants but what i did do was going around here and the yard and collect the flowering stems to make a quite pretty little bouquet of succulent flowers. they are like gorgeous little gems. have you missed me? i  have missed you. i love you blogger i really do.


  1. always love your succulent posts!
    ooh, and I have a question for the succulent lady; I've got little white oval bugs on my succulent! help!!

  2. hello there mr sekimachihato!! well that sounds like you have mealy bug which is really common and they are a pain in the ass. you can wipe them off with a swab dipped in rubbing alcohol but that is a difficult method to eradicate them. you could also use a solution of 3 parts water to 1 part rubbing alcohol and spray in between the leaves as well. although you may wish to spray off the solution a little bit later with some water as the alcohol can damage the plant or you could use a pesticide such as malathion but nothing with oils in it because that will also damage the plant as well. good luck sir!!

  3. oh god, I've got a bit of a task on my hands by the sounds of things...
    but thank you so much for the advice!
    it's an inside plant and I'm very tempted to just put it outside on the varanda, let nature do it's course. no?
