Hi! I have been reading and reading and reading and I seem to be even more lost than I was before! I have recently purchased some succulents. Here is the link to be exact:


Here is the list of what I got:

Seriecio Rowleyanus / String of Pearls

Kalanchoe / Mother of Thousands

Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg / Rose Colored

Echeveria Harmsii / Red Velvet

Echeveria / Green Velvet

Crassula / Jade

Crassula Ovata Arborescens / Baby Jade

Sedum Rubrotinctum / Pork n Beans

Tradescantia Pallida / Purple Heart Wondering Jew

Aeonium / Zwartkop

Aeonium / Sunset Crest

Aeonium / Kiwi

Aeonium / Green Rosette

Aeonium / Variegated Green n White Rosette

Aeonium Hawthorii / Pinwheel Rosette

Stapelia / Starfish Flower

Crassula Marnieriana / Jade Necklace Vine Miniature

Graptopetalum Paraguayense / Ghost Plant

Portulacaria Afra / Miniature Jade

Crassula Rupestris / Good for Hanging Baskets

Echeveria Dehrenbergii / Ghostly Blue Rosette

Aloe Vera / Medicine Aloe

Euphorbia Tirucalli / Pencil Cactus

Delosperma / Ice Plant Purple or Pink

Delosperma / Ice Plant White or Orange

Now what I'll be receiving are cuttings/small plants. I was thinking of putting these in my empty 29 gallon fish tank. I used to use it, but I haven't for about 3 years since I've moved around. I have all the accessories with it, including a hood with flourescent lights. So I was wondering if anyone has any advice. I will only be putting plants in it, no water falls, no animals. Thanks for your help!

WoW Will you have room for all those?? Many of those resent too high humidity,very high light requirements and several get quite large. I have seen beautiful succulent terrariums but for me they rot . So I mainly grow them in the yard. How do you plan on potting and arranging??
