Update on the baby beans- 8 little sprouts

The 8 Mescal bean (Sophora secundiflora) seeds I planted are all up now and growing well! I move them out of the direct sun in the hot afternoons, but then usually move them back in the evenings. I haven't quite decided what I will do with all 8, as I have 3 others growing in the yard too, but I will find homes for them all somewhere!

Thanks for the ID on the A. rufescens. I compared your photos to Peter's A. gigantea, and I do believe my little succulent is more like A. rufescens. I've learned to care for it by trail and error, and it's doing very well now. That's why I like to have definite IDs--to avoid care mistakes.
I appreciate the help.

thank you for the visit to my aloe site. Yes there are many species of aloes that grow just fine in other countries. Some, like the beautiful Aloe polyphylla grows high in the Lesotho mountains where they are snowed under in the winter. These aloes grow better in European gardens than in the South African gardens.

I enjoyed your site. very good photos of the cacti flowers.

One can never have enough plants! You can always have a plant sale. I sometimes do that to augment my plant spending.
