Hot Plants





Many of them have another charming talent: making babies right from the original plant, snuggled up against the “mother” like newborn puppies. You can leave them like that, allowing them to fill in their home spot, or separate the babies and start a new family elsewhere.

One word of caution: Not all succulents tolerate freezing weather. Makes sense, when you think about it: they love hot weather, hate cold. Be sure to check the labels, ask the smart folks at the nursery, or do a little research. If you’re not sure, bring them inside for the cold spells. Make a tabletop arrangement, or line them up on a windowsill, or anyplace else that could use a spot of living green.
