I was looking at this one this naming, thinking how cute it is but I wish I could put a name to it. It's only in a one inch pot and about 6 inches tall.
Thanks again to the very kind person here whom sent it to me in the spring:-)

It was starting coloring up nicely until the rains moved in. It almost reminded me of a tiny weird looking Christmas Tree.

Do you have a cute plant in your collection?

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

I had several, but Id say my funky haworthia is pretty cute.
By the way, yours is a Sedum, Jellybean Plant I believe its called.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Your sedum is very cute, Mike. My contribution is more curiosity than cute. It's a tiny CC or TC, I'm not sure which. I got a bag of mixed cuttings several years ago, and this one has been hanging around but not doing much. I repotted it this spring and it started to grow. I hope it is CC and not TC, but the green with red edges is pretty no matter what it decides to do. Hoping for a blossom this year, but not expecting it.

greenlarry, the leaf shape seems to make it Sedum pachyphyllum. Yale

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Ime....That is a very cute looking cutting. It doesn't look like a T.C but more like a E.C to me. It could also be a C.C.
I'll bet someone will be along to identify real soon. But whatever it is, you are right, beautiful red edges!

Thanks for the pic and comments.

Greenlarry..How are things? I would love to see a pic of your haworthia, some can be quite unique looking. Thank you for naming my plant.

Can't wait to see everyone else's cute plants.

The cactus, lme5573, looks to me kinda like my Hatiora rosea. Easter cactus! Easily turns that red-ish hue. Thick bloomer, which is great, and a little bit of a trailing habit.

my cutey plant, Sedum multiceps


 o
My funky Haworthia

I have no idea of the species or cultivar but it was emergency potted into garden soil one winter after the greenhouse died, and just left. Recently I got my interest back and so repotted it in compost mixed with cheap cat litter. Has to be the cheap stuff, not the fancy stuff loaded with chemicals.

Hes my only Haw now so I will call him Han Solo

Here's mine... a cutting of crassula platyphylla that someone sent me. 1 1/4 inches tall. It will color up burgundy with some sunshine.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Thanks, teatree. I hadn't seriously considered EC, but it does resemble the plant in your link. I didn't know EC looked like yours, I think of EC like the modern ones, all green and shiny, or hairy like the one my Grandmother gave me. I'll post some pix in another thread since I don't want to hijack Mike's thread.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

H.retusa eh, hmmm, thanks


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Teatree...You know, I have seen that plant before and I fell in love with it. It's so different, not easy to find, and quite 'cute'!

Larry, wow, am I glad you decided to save that one. I think Solo has done well considering what he's been through. Nice!

Mi, pray for sunshine, will you? I love that jade. In fact, Chris here gave me a couple of these litte guys and boy can they turn a nice color. I hope to see it when it does. Nice.
Speaking of Chris, I owe him some mail.

Lets' see if I can dig up another cutie....


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Sorry I can't post a photo, the cuteness would be easier to see than envision through my words. I have a zz plant leaflet that sprouted, I've put it in a 1.25 inch pot. Hubby says it's "Cute." I'd post a photo but my camera has died.

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

"Cute" is a very subjective term, Mike. It's all a matter of personal opinion...I am a sucker for Crassula ovata, of course.

Noki, that is indeed ugly enough that it's cute, and the H. cooperi var. truncata is both cute and so pretty.

Annette, that's beautiful color on your jade. The differences between the 'Gollum' and 'Hobbit' jades can be confusing, but are discussed well here.

One of my cutest plants..... Pachyphytum oviferum.
Common names: Moonstones, Sugar Almond Plant.
Still rooting, misting only and no watering yet.

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

After some debate with my partner in crime we both agreed cute to mean "tiny". A second debate was about a tiny plant or a tiny flower. There was no clear winner to debate #2

First item of debate is a tiny plant in a smaller than a bic pen on all sides staging.




Photobucket

Adromischus Marianae Herrei

Second item of debate is the small flower




Photobucket

Euphorbia Obesea: Note to the other posted and also a good debate as well. E obesea and my understanding is that males have a flower coloring of orange/yellow female flower is pinkish/red.

Link for E.obesea info and sexes

E. Obesea can sometimes change sex it is not very common as a single or as a set of both M and F in cultivation to change sex. It is more common amongst many of them in an area for some of them to change sexes from F to M or M to F.

I tend to associate cute with smaller plants too, but I think furry cacti are also pretty cute.

Here it is - glad I checked.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Linda:

What kind of cactus is that? (I'm a beginner here.)

It looks like a Muppet! Super cute (even if it's not tiny!)


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Baby Sansevierias that grew for me from a Rhizome that I forgot in a pot.

They started out as the tiniest of green specks (was in a thread I posted here called something like "Check twice before Throwing it Out").

Richard B -- this is thanks to you, I'd never seen this before.

& since I knocked it over (in messing w/ it), I thought it'd be interesting to see it alone, out of mix.

Photobucket

I like that even when tiny, it's gotten distinct segments already & nice little roots too.

I enjoy wacky experiments like these.

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Neat a phalocereus senilis " Old Man cactus" cute cause it looks a-lot like Thing on the show The Adams Family.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Phalocereus? Has it changed name too? I knew it as Selenocereus when I had one!


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Rachel and all, I always thought it was Oreocereus celsianus. I'm not sure what he (?) reminds me of, but he does have character.

Pirategirl, the baby Schlumbergera is especially cute. One of my Sansevierias is flowering, has been for weeks because there are a few flower spikes, and I didn't know until now that the flowers are fragrant!


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Hey Mike! I recognize that Sedum, looking very nice. You take such great care of your plants.
I liked the idea of this thread so I went out to look for my cutest plant and found more than a few. I hope you don't mind my not being able to choose just one.

Colleen, your multiceps looks terrific! I haven't had much time to post lately but I saw your Haw thread and your plants are looking gorgeous as ever.

Noki, very nice Psuedolithos! Is it migiurtinus? I tried them from seed but couldn't get them past 6 months. The pups will continue to grow fine until some brave soul has the courage to remove one and root it... or put it in a box with my name on it, you know, whatever.

Here are my cutest plants.

I thought this was a tiny Pachyphytum but I can't seem to ID it.

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Wow, what nice plants and pots too. So many cute plants, so little time!!!

Here's mine. On Google, it's Haemanthus Albiflos, may be called paintbrush. I'm not sure if it's a succulent. The leaves are thick. Right after it bloomed a couple of weeks ago, a grasshopper fell in love with it and did some leaf damage. Linda

Middle- 3. Uebelmannia pectinefra 4. Aztekium hintonii

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Here's one of my favorites! Have had it about 2 years now. and the container was my first attempt at Hyper Tufa. A flop but I do love how it turned out. lol..
The plant is about 3" tall and each arm about the thickness of a pencil maybe a little smaller.

Sorry about the dark pic. It was an overcast day. :-(

Jojo, now that is a cutie! I love how all the little ones surround the little ones. It looks like a center piece and that pot certainly has flavor, character....I would like to make one for myself actually. Upon first glance I was going to ask you where you got it.Yup..lol
I love the coloring of both that pot and the plant. They almost blend. Nice job!

You even gave it a name. Wowowoa

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Hi Mike!
Now how could you forget this thread. lol..
I love this plant and hope I get it through another winter.

We had a blast making the hyper tufas. This one was formed over a square pot but kept falling down. LOL! so I let it go. Sat around for 6 mo. before I decided what would go in it. :-)

Thank you.. :-) I think the plant blends in well with it too.

It came with that name. ;-) I dare you to say it 10 times fast. LOL! I got this from Arid Lands.

RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

OK
I love all the plants I am glad I dont have to be a judge over them but I have a question...I have 2 old men cactus and I bought a old woman this week shes bigger and harrier so if I put them all together whats gonna happen :)

Also I bought a obesa (this store was going out of business) so I kinda went cacti happy. it just was tagged baseball cactus, now I didn't know about them changing sex, man what kind of cactus store as he selling LOL I truly need to read up on some of the cactus I bought I just have not had the time or know the correct name to look them up thats why love this place you can find what you need.

You all have beautiful plants I learned just by looking I dont know why the old man was a bit redder than I ever saw was it out in the sun a lot this year?

Bye all for now happy growing.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Your old lady might have babies with those two old men in the same pot. Sounds kinky tome.

All kidding aside, they will slowly make a pup or two off the main columns but they seem to grow ever so slowly or mine do. One might give them a bit of room if you are worried about that. Or just ignore it and if they crowd, then one can deal with it later.


 o
RE: One of my cutest plants! What's one of yours?

Well the big old lady is in a pot by itself and the old men are also they are just half her size.....this will be interesting....I have been searching and I still can not figure out the male from the female.

My son said I might turn out too be a granny. LOL
