New succulent tub.

This was the way I decided to use some succulent plants that needed potting on .Just an experiment as I am new to succulents .
After the wet season I will know which types are suitable for planting in the elements.

Succulent babies.

These are babies produced at the margins of the mature leaves of the mother plants.
I placed some babies on top of a pot of succulent mix , gave the pot a cup of water and left them alone.
The next photo. shows the result after 3 weeks.
They are Kalanchoe daigremontiana below and Kalanchoe gastonis- boniere at top.

Kalanchoe daigremontiana.

This Kalanchoe is producing little plantlet babies all along the margin of each leaf,which fall off when ready to grow .
This plant reminds me of the shells of the Sydney Opera House.

Kalanchoe gastonis- bonniere producing babies on leaf ends

These Kalanchoe are interesting to watch at this time.
When the little baby plantlets get big enough they produce roots , several of mine alresdy have roots .
The plantlets will drop off and can be potted up .
