March 2020: Cute/Chubsters

Post by HaoBao » Sun Mar 01, 2020 7:48 pm

Thank you Roatavator, I didn’t expect that from my first entry! I told my wife I won a competition and she said “What did you win?” “Nothing but I get to choose the next one” She said “it should be something makes people go awww” so what’s that? I think anything cute or round so Pachyphytum, Graptopetalum, Sedum and anything else chubby and cute. I’ve added some to get it started, best of luck!

Lovely plants Aiko, they are perfect, thank you

I’ve just realised this competition is going to add some plants to the old wish-list :razz:

Never seen the bulbine bruynsii before Aiko, they look great.

Very much on a steep learning curve, just love the huge variety and how different succulents can be from one another.

This isn’t very cute but definitely a chubster. Don’t know how others in the UK have got on this winter but with all the dull damp weather I’ve found watering to be particularly problematic, even a very gritty compost stays too wet after only very light splash. Result = very plump dumplings!
