Good To Grow, Liza's photos, East Windowsill Crew

I recently upgraded/repotted/rearranged/consolidated the east windowsill plants. The newcomers include a Haworthia reinwaldii (far left on the sill – that’s a Kalanchoe down below with the orange flowers) in its new container. I’d picked him out about this time last year at a succulent sale. So far he’s been a champ. Now that he’s in a bigger pot, I expect a growth spurt.

Next to him is a combo container with a Senecio ‘String of Pearls’ and a Caralluma lutea plant. A very attractive combo, in my humble opinion.

Then there’s the ever-weird Schizobasis intricata, which I got at that same succulent sale, although he’s a bulb not a succulent. I’d gotten him because I’d never seen one before – he’s from Africa. And I meant to keep featuring him here on the blog but I wanted to see how he would grow first. I can’t decide if I like him or not. I can say that he flowers all the time, but the flowers are so tiny that they are very difficult to capture with my camera. I’ll keep trying. Despite the “schizo” in his name, he’s all chill and low maintenance.

Next to him, a new succulent bowl with cuttings from existing houseplants, including the Haworthia + Aloe hybrid and some Echeveria hybrids.

It feels good to keep consolidating plants. When you get good at growing houseplants, you tend to take on more and more. Then you need to reverse the trend lest your house get overrun by green friends.

I’m curious, do any of you have experience with the weirdo plant? If so, I’d love to hear about it. Share your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks!
