Succulent flowers are amazing!

Will it produce seeds?

I don't know, you tell me. I wasn't even aware there was a term for this type of plants before >>25-san spoke the truth.

Hmm, I can't seem to properly identify the plant. The leaf rosettes/stem suggest it's an Echeveria but the flowers are a little odd, Echeverias usually have a sort of "trail" of flowers rather than a burst. It's perhaps a hybrid, though I have no idea which one or hybridised with what.

Either way, as with most succulents; It'll produce seed, but it's so fine it'll be difficult to use (though you can if you want!). Propagation is generally done from leaf or stem cuttings.

I didn't realise peppermint was capable of flowering.

They grow so virulently I thought they just propagate themselves by rooting branches that fall off or something!

Holy heck that is beautiful!

What type of plant is that? I'm new to planting but I'd definitely would love to try it as my first plant.

I just want you to know that I ordered some gardening things.

I don't know if it's the same plant as the one in your picture but i bought some seeds of Kalanchoe rotundifolia.

Anyway, it was just a really nice picture. Have a nice day!

Wow, the leaves on those are really neat. They look almost geological.

Glad you guys like my plant and very happy to see people getting into gardening because of it. I have somehow managed not to kill my other plants (even though some got very thirsty at times), will post an updated picture of my windowsill later.

What about psychedelic cactus? Does anyone here grow Peyote, San Pedro or Peruvian torch?

Or any psychoactive plant in general. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_psychoactive_plants

Hahaha, I thought you were joking. I had no idea you could get high off cactus.

Opium poppies are fairly common in the UK. Only gets illegal once they're scored.

I've even got an old 1940s gardening book that gives instruction on how to actually extract the opium (for the war effort of course, ahem).

I've started some avocado seeds in water. Once they grow, i'll take photos.

I'm amused to find the wikipedia article on avocados has a "Avocado-related international trade issues" section.

My chilli plant finally ripened! I used the flesh in a chilli con carne, but saved the seeds to plant again next year. Need to germinate them earlier next time though, I started this plant last March and have only just harvested it 9 months later...

Ive heard avocado trees take a while to bear fruit.
Then again, ive also read an article from someone who had an avocado tree around their house as a child, and said it produced so much fruit they were throwing large amounts away every year.

I don't know a lot about gardening, but they look like they're coming along very nicely. Good job!

Nice spider plant! Why not try propagating some of the spiderlings and giving them to friends?

I spent two nights at a friends house who are the kindest people I know.
