Supermarket Succulents #1

Hi all, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of supermarkets? A place to buy food, right? Once in awhile, you’ll probably see plants that’s for sale during certain seasons.

I got these succulents at Save Mart near my home! I’ve seen them for several months near the balloon section every time I go get redbox. I thought they were a little expensive for my taste, but today, I saw it on sale for ONLY $1. They all looked so pathetic, sad and possibly dehydrated and wanted to buy it and see if I can bring them back to their juicy succulent ways. Here’s what I got…

(2) ECHEVERIA BLACK PRINCE

These two black prince actually look like they are still healthy, but the only thing I noticed was that the pointy ends seemed a bit “flimsy” and not hard and spiky. I love these echeveria, so, it was definitely a must get!

(1) ALOE

I really liked how this looked against the white square pot. I lightly pressed the aloe and it felt like 2 thin layers on top of each other and no “gel” in there. I am hoping that these will get more plump as I water them.

(1) CRASSULA

I am not sure what type of crassula this one is. The leaves look really long and DEHYDRATED! You can see how 90% of the leaves are really wrinkled, but it’s not dead.

(1) ECHEVERIA TOPSY TURVY

There were no tags on this succulent, so, I looked it up online and I believe that it’s a echeveria topsy turvy. It looks healthy, except for the dried leaves at the bottom.

I don’t usually buy succulents from the supermarket, so, this is my first time ever. I wonder how long it will take for the dehydrated succulents to get back into tip top shape. I’ll do another update later. Note: I got these on Friday, June 23, 2017.
