I just tried these for the first time this year and they do very well.

Right now I am pruning my hanging baskets of them and I will have lots of cuttings to offer.. but get them quick! Otherwise its the compost heap!

D-mail me for details...

So, is anyone else doing them and do they have any other color besides the deep pink? I heard they came in yellow.. is their other colors of them?

crasulady, thats neat, I heard they came in yellow!

I like this plant! It multiplies fast and makes great baskets!

I do hope they will winter over inside my home. My GH turns into a storage shed in the winter asit has no heat and my house is alwasy too dry and I end up killing a lot of plants here but I try every fall like a fool!

Maybe this year I will have some luck.. I got so many plants in the house I can almost feel the humidity from them...otherwise the house is too dry and I have been know to murder a cactus!

But now you got me hunting for white as well as the yellow!
---------------------------------------

cjcjmass, you have d-mail...as I was telling you, I put about 8 cuttings into a hanging basket and that will fill the basket in no time. The cuttings root in 2-3 weeks. I dip them in rooting hormone,then poke them right into the basket and whalah!

Ok, guys, I got several requests, thanks! They will be in the mail.

When I get the next lot of cuttings, I will see what I can do then too!

Be sure too to let me know what it is you have to trade. I will go postage instead of plants or seed.

We are talking about Delosperma, the Ice Plant? Or is this another? Flower seems to be similar.

I think it might be Aptenia. They also come in a light red and yellow. Beautiful plant for hanging pots and for covering. Colleen

its a Mesembryanthemum im sure and they come in alot of colours and different sized flowers and leaves. All shaded of pink-red to yellow-orange, white. Usually a ground cover and it's a succulent so they don't need alot of water.

Have a look in Plantfiles Blossom. It looks like they've lumped Aptenia and Mesems in together. Colleen

Aptenia roots and grows very easily as others have said. When I take cuttings I always put a group in water and they thrive there also. They root in the water and, if you don't leave them in water for too long, you can transfer to soil. I love their apple green color in a pretty vase.

Ok, Cuttings are gone for now, but I just got in a new varigated baby sun rose! WHooooWhoo!

The other day I was at Leos and she gave me a cutting of her momma. I would have bought the momma, but it was too pricey.

Then I get home and had regrets! Thought to myself, oh man, would if it did not get growing for me. Well, I always had luck with the solid green so mch that last year I wa able to make 21 hanging baskets from the cuttings I received from DIRTYGIRL71...

Today I when back to Leo, gave her a bunch of cuttings off the solid green, got a great price on the momma and now I have her home!

I too am interested in cuttings, but not right now. My life is WAY too full for now. I'm hoping next summer will be just a little less crazy. I LOVE anything variegated. To me it just adds character to the leaves. What color are the flowers on this variegated sun rose?
