Hi everyone,

I live in a city centre apartment with a windowsill that is sunny through some of the day. Some of other apartments keep plants on the balcony-ledge thing but our doors are broken so we can't. We have a mint plant that we adopted by accident, a dragon thingy that my flatmate got when he moved out of his parents, and a humble collection of what I believe are 4 succulents that I buy from a street vendor in town occaisonally (apparently my partner likes them so sometimes I just kind of thrust one at him as a message of "I love you and you like these so I bring them to you").

Oh, and I have a little pak choi thingy that I used while cooking. I kind of nestled the stump in the soil because I thought it was funny and the little guy has grown all beautiful new leaves! There is also an avocado stone in a bucket of soil that I planned on trying to hatch but I only watered it once and then forgot about it, so I'll have to try again with that sometime, maybe finding out exactly what it wants beforehand this time. :)

I'm happy to see them doing fairly well (they survived a narrow brush with death and being repotted whilst a bit dead) but I am acutely aware that is is a fluke on my part as I haven't done anything differently than I did with the last couple of supermarket herbs (that died horrible deaths to do with a load of gross tiny transparent worms in the soil). Although the mint is not so happy right now and I'm not sure why, so I may ask for help shortly.

So I thought I'd come here and try and learn some more for their welfare. :D Especially as I am quite taken with them.

Jace XOXO

Hello, jasriel, and welcome to the forum!! :)

I'm not overly familiar with succulents, but that is a very pretty little one at the front middle of your planter. Looks like light green flowers! Kind of reminds me of "hens and chicks," but I don't think that's what it is... :confused:

It came unlabelled and so far I am pretty clueless at identifying them so I've no idea what it actually is though. :p
:D Well, you have definitely come to the right place! If you'll just step this way, I'd be happy to show you to the "Plant Identification" forum!! Of course, you'll want to bring your pictures and show them around to the gang...
