Virtual Tour of My Succulent Garden – Part I

Finally, my succulent garden is in good shape; it has undergone major redesign. Before I take you to a detailed virtual tour of my succulent garden, let me show a panoramic view of the rooftop where these succulents live.

Let’s start with a welcome note 🙂

Here is a full view of my succulent garden.

These are some of larger specimens of Agave plants in my collection. You can see Agave Stricta and Agave Stritata in large terracotta containers as well as a couple of Agave Guiengola in small containers.

This picture shows a smaller section dedicated to Hawothias, Aloes and other succulents.

I use both plastic and terracotta containers for them.

There is yet another section for young seedlings. You can see 1.5 year old Melocactus and Astrophytum from my own seeds.

My Succulent Garden

These days my succulent garden is undergoing major changes – in fact a major re-design primarily because of a small construction project. Because of the new construction, I had to squeeze my succulent garden and give away some 475 sq.ft. of space. I am experimenting with rest of the space and trying to accommodate as many plants as I can. Here is a sneak preview of my succulent garden. I will post a detailed virtual tour of my succulent garden later. By the way, it is a roof-top succulent garden.
