Fan Aloe Transplanted into the Ground

After many years in a simple plastic 5-gallon container, my fan aloe was ready to be transplanted into the ground in my back yard. I had transplanted other succulents from container to ground when they grew quite large, with great success. Much to my delight, they have grown quite a bit taller and spread, which waIMG_3106s an argument against my re-potting the fan aloe into a larger container. I’d like to see all of these lovely plants get to be the size of small trees!

The trunk of this plant is already quite thick and sturdy, signaling the good health of this plant. It is an exciting addition to my modest but mighty in-ground succulent garden! The one in the background is my purple aeoneum. The one in the middle is my jade plant, which actually spent the first few years indoors and rather small. It’s not small any longer! In between the fan aloe and the jade plant are the lovely rosettes of my ghost plant (aka mother of pearl plant). All succulents, all exquisite, and all produce flowers!

Because succulents are very low-maintenance, it’s a part of my backyard garden that I have not had to worry too much about. There is some overgrowth and dried vegetation that I will be cleaning up tomorrow, but it’s so very easy to do.

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  Ingestion of the sap of the jade plant may cause illness and skin contact with the sap may also cause dermatitis. More information on toxic plants can be found here:IMG_3107
