So, next time you feel it would be nice to live in Florida, hoyas would be so happy there remember this picture!

Just to clarify, this carnosa is hanging on the wall on the patio 3 feet away from the door! Not somewhere in the backyard, on the tree. Whole idea that garden snake used my plant as convenient spot to shed it's skin is freaking me out!
Happy growing to all!

Wow, that's kinda cool! I'm not bothered by snakes, but if I reached into a plant to groom it or water it and one popped it's head out, it could freak me out! LOL! And I do imagine down there, you have a few that are poisonous. The only poisonous ones we have up here are rattlesnakes, and you don't see those except in very rural areas. Garter snakes and bullsnakes are about all you ever see in the city and they're pretty harmless...

I especially like the eyeballs peering out from the middle of the plant! A great C-R-E-E-P-Y Halloween pic!

That is gross. I have NO desire to live in Florida, ha ha. It is way to hot for me and your snake freaks me out. Not sure who I could round up to get that out of my pot. I wonder how long it was in there before it left you its present? YUK

RE: Next time you wish to live in Florida...

We have few poisonous species, but mostly out in Everglades away from the city. None less I had a chance to freak out many times, they can pretend to be rattlesnakes, shaking they tails and if any dry leaves touch it it makes same noises, or finding company while swimming in the pool!

Have no clue how long it takes, but I'm really happy I missed it! Kind of used to finding shed skins in the backyard, although never so close to the house! Not very happy about it!

RE: Next time you wish to live in Florida...

OMG!! I hate snakes...and I live in FL too! I too would be completely freaked out! Glad you never saw who it belonged to :o)

Thanks for I'll be more careful before I water my Hoyas outside,lol...

RE: Next time you wish to live in Florida...

Hate, hate hate snakes. Was moving benches around the other day to adjust for the changes in the sun, and as I bent down to grab a bench, a black snake popped out. Well it's been three days and I still haven't moved that bench lol.
