Overnight? No! But in seven years, what started its humble life in a light gray stone container, living inside my home, exploded in growth when planted in the ground outdoors. It’s enjoying its home close to the wall and aspires to grow to at least that height, and probably even more so. But check it out in the stone container, in the middle foreground of the older photo. With a modest number of branches and lovely rounded leaves, I could not have predicted what a tremendously beautiful specimen that it would become. It won’t be contained! Time has flown by and I look forward to a lifetime of loveliness from this cherished succulent!
