rare black succulent | DESERT ROSE ( ADENIUM OBESUM ) 5 seeds RARE BLACK FIRE | eBay

Succulent, jelly bean plant, if the little leaves are broken off they grow new roots of their own

Add 1 tsp. of liquid food coloring to 1 cup of water. Drizzle the colored water onto the soil surrounding the base of a plant. Wait 24 hours for the water to absorb. Apply another identical dose if the color change was not sufficient.

ROOTING SUCCULENTS - cleanly pull/break leaf from plant making sure whole leaf is in tact. Allow to dry out & end to scab over. Place leaf on top of soil. (if you bury the cut end in soil, it will only roots from that end. If you lay on top of soil, it will grow both roots & form new plant) Water when soil becomes dry. Roots and new plants should start to grow with in a couple of weeks.

DIY - airplant centerpiece in wine glass. Did something similar with a huge glass from midevil times.

Herb Garden in Jars. Someone posted: To improve drainage, add a 1/2" layer of broken terra cotta, glass marbles, or other non-organic and non-toxic material at the bottom. When you water, you'll be able to see how much water gathers there. You'll learn to water just enough to keep the soil moist without creating puddles of stagnant water in the bottom.
