If you’re trying to grow and cultivate your own green thumb, succulents are a great starting point.

Succulents are surprisingly easy to care for and make a great plant for any skill level.

With juicy leaves, stems, or roots, succulents form a vast and diverse group of plants, offering many choices for your home. Plus, they look stunning planted alone or as companions.

    I’ve watched your show on my local tv station for years. I did not have a chance to watch it in a few years recently. Really missed your show. Thanks I’ve just found your show here today.

    Love your pot arrangement, just wondering what kind of sedum did you plant?? it was the first one you put in. tks Nicky

    Mr. Smith I highly suggest you get together with Debra Lee Baldwin when it comes to container gardening or succulents in general that poor pot in the beginning. I love you’re videos and content but for me specifically you could have used a little expert advice on this….thriller, filler and spiller, those are the three keys to a successful succulent container.

    J!!!!!! Oh my oldest flower friend on YouTube. I had no criticism however I’m still wishing you’d revisit growers in California. And go figure maybe include some of the massive succulent farms/nursery’s that are thriving within this massive trend and looks like a here to stay obsession. Xoxo to both of you, minus the first container these ideas were lovely and I am going to use a few of these sweet ideas. But for some who don’t know more about succulents I’d expect a few will have rotting jade from watering it right after cutting it from the mother plant and its lower leafs.

    Succulent fanatic here. Echeveria are not Hens and Chicks. Sempervivums are 🙂 And to propagate Echeveria, you lay the leaf flat on a succulent/cacti soil bed/seed tray, and when the succulent is big enough you can plant it. If you just ram the cut end into the ground the baby succulent will die. Check this out;

    All fine ideas--except I liked the bouquet much better than the table topper where the cacti were snipped off their roots—
    I hate to see them trying to root in non earth (ie. foam)

    As always Allen, really great content! Love the pumpkin planter idea! Can't wait to try it. I have a question about the segment with Schwanke (4:55). Do the skewers become a kind of "root" for them to draw water or is this just for a temporary display?
