95/366: succulent cuttings

That 2009 drought inspired me to re-think my garden. With severe water restrictions and excessive heat, it was time to move towards succulents.On my morning walks there were many pretty little succulents growing, from which I took cuttings.

Two months later it was obvious that some grow prolifically and others are slower growers, making it simpler to decide where to put them. The fastest growing one would be better off in a pot, unless you want it to run riot. With succulents there is no need for hormone or rooting powder. Just cut them off, pop them in potting mix/composted soil, water them in, and then wait.
