Unknown Succulent Found and Potted

[Update 8/29/16: It’s a Sedum dendroideum subsp. praealtum]

I found this succulent under our Bosc Pear Tree when I was doing some garden clean up and thought I would pot it up.

Unknown Succulent

These have been growing along one of our fence and my Mom seems to think that may have popped up from our neighbor’s yard.

Unknown Succulent

We never really took much notice or it, but when I saw this good sized multi-branch which was already partially rooted, I thought it would look much better properly potted up and given more light.

I’m not really sure what it is. My Mom thinks it’s a Jade (Cassula sp.) while I think it may be a type of Aeonium… We don’t know.

Anyone know what it is?

Weekend Gardening

I thought I would be doing a lot of gardening this weekend, but there was actually not much to do. Surprisingly, the weather was warm… even after the rains we got mid-week.

I transfered about 18 Spinach seedlings from 2 six-packs into 3 inch pots.

The Bok Choy and Lettuce that I planted to replace the ones that were eaten are sprouting… and the Swiss Chard that were spared are getting bigger now.

Hopefully, we’ll have a lot of greens for the Fall, Winter and Spring.

The Sweet Peas and Snap Peas are also sprouting, but I won’t plat them in the bed until they get a little bigger, since they seems to be favorites of the birds and slugs.

I potted up a succulent (I think it’s some type of Kalanchoe) that has been growing from a leaf. I’ll have to post photos later, to see if anyone can identify it.

On Sunday, I took my mom to do some grocery shopping at the Filipino store, then we stopped by the 99¢ store and I found 2 more Cactus (actually one is a Euphorbia, so technically, 1 cactus)… I’ll post photos later.

Oh, I also forgot that on Friday afternoon, I took a late lunch and walked up Filbert Steps again to shot a few photos.

I Couldn’t Resist!

I couldn’t resist buying these Splitrock today. I’m not sure if it is Pleiospilos species possibly Pleiospilos Nelii. Can anyone confirm?


Below are baby Kalanchoe tubiflora grown from leaflets found on the garden floor of a large home improvement store back in February. I had to save them! They were so tiny when I found them… Now they are about half an inch tall.
