Thank god succulents are tough! These poor cuttings have just been laying here, untouched, since I cut them on November 3rd, I couldn't decide what to do with them. They were rescued from certain death so that I would be able to plant them in the ground again next spring. I just want them to live, not necessarily flourish, over the winter. I thought about using them, along with my Aeonium schwarzkopf and Graptoveria cuttings, to make a succulent wreath, I hear they are “all the rage” with the cool kids. But where to put it? No good place, so the Aeonium and Graptoveria were easily potted up and nestled in with the basement crowd. But there were too many of these cuttings, I didn’t have the room for the same treatment.
Then it occurred to me…our empty and gloomy bedroom window sills could use a little perking up! And I had just the small container collection that would fit. Presto! Instant succulent interest… Instead of looking out at grey skies and our garage roof, now our eyes rest on a little jungle of succulents. They’ll get whatever natural light we’ve got to give over the next 5 or 6 months, and I’ll get to open my eyes every morning and look at the sky, with a horizon of Senecio, Sedum robotinctum, Kalanchoe NOID and (what I think is) an Aeonium. Much better than leaving them to turn to mush outside. And doing a little "indoor gardening" like this is just the kind of thing that gets me through the winter months.
