LOVE the containers! They really do the succulents justice! Very nice plants too.

Oxdrift, Canada

Thanks guys . By now I thought this was a dead thread. If I get a chance in the next few days I will post a few of this years. We have had hot weather so good success

Gainesville, FL

Do you make these yourself?

I made the rectangular hypertufa pot in position #3 of the first post and the round one in position #3 in the second post as well as a square one not pictured. The rhubarb leaf was given to me by my sister that she purchased from a craft market so it was hand made locally.
I just snapped a bunch of shots of this years collection

The container in photo #5 above is an antique blacksmiths forge that was my great grandfathers. I aquired it in 2014 when my parents sold the farm and refurbished it the next spring

PS. To get back to the original intent of this thread, I was attempting to invite others to share photos of their container succulents LOL.

You don't leave your succulents out all winter do you? They are beautiful. I manage to kill mine occasionally, I think I overwater.

Hi Ruth. No those babies won't winter outside here. I have a whack of them growing inside under lights right now. Depending on the plant I either take cuttings or transplant the whole plant to keep them over winter. Bigger plants are in a basement window and the rest are under lights

I planted a slew of them into a rock garden this fall, they are supposed to be hardy to my zone, so we will see if they survive the winter. I love succulents, but every burro's tail that I have had seems to die within weeks. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. Maybe not enough humidity...

They aren't hardy in my zone and and I'm 7a. https://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/2543/

Ruth,
Would think the only succulents that you could safely overwinter would be the likes of sedums and sempervirens. Definitely not the burros tail. I don't find it at all difficult in my program of in for the winter and out for the summer however it is very slow growing for me. I will take photos of the two I have inside under lights right now. This is the 2nd winter of transplanting the whole plant into the house of the larger one and the smaller one was put outside as a new cutting last spring and I lifted the whole plant and brought inside last month
Cville,
Nice to hear from you. We haven't crossed paths on a thread for some time. Thanks for sharing your succulent photos. Nice.

Burros tails currently in my basement jungle

I don't have a beautiful collection like yours. I only have these two but here they are. The one in the birdbath needs a little TLC. I'm reading up on caring for succulents because I really want to try more of them. Thanks for your photos. They've inspired me.

Very nice Chris. I particularly like the one with the burros tails. You are well on your way.
I make my own succulent soil mix. I buy Sunshine Promix BX with mychorize in large bales for all my outdoor planters. For the succulents I mix 2 parts of the Sunshine mix with one part Cherry Stone poultry grit that I get from a local feed store. To that I add slow release plant fertilizer for containers to keep them fed for the entire summer. Hope this helps
Keith
