    What the heck is that moaning in the background. It's so irritating and I can't concentrate on Debra! It gets a bit quieter later in the video, but It's so hard to not focus on it. Also why all the hate on Debra? I'm an artist, and I know good arrangements when I see them, and Debra's work is no exception. Sometimes you gotta rip a plant apart to get it to be the shape you want to fit the composition. And the succulents won't die from it because they are tough.

    Here is something funny you would appreciate Debra. I watched another video you did on what kind of soil you used for your pots. You said you add Dry Stall to regular potting soil the cheapest you can find. I went online to Google Dry Stall and I finally found Dry Stall at a store in Paso Robles CA called "Tractor Store". They have items for animals, horses, farms and gardens. It is used for the horses stalls. I bought a big bag for $9.00. Brought it home and my husband saw it and said sarcastically "What are you going to do with that? Are you going to bring home a horse? I of course did not answer him until later in the afternoon. I said, using it for my succulents! I now have a years supply of pumice! LOL Guess I have to buy more pots and succulents.

    I would not watch a person like her to brake a succulent plant that takes years to get to the size.that that plant she tore up it just sad can't stand her pleasure.

    Rodger's Garden, I have no idea who did the CC for you but perhaps you should read the print and see what non-hearing people are getting from this wonderful lady.

    I thought one could put cinnamon powder on the "juicy cut end" when you cut a plant so prevent fungi.

  • she really is not good….

  • Great Public Speaker.  Good usage of words.  Interesting video on succulents.

    It hurt to watch her tear that plant apart. Would prefer a much much shorter tutorial.
