Sucs for Me

I bought this new succulent a couple weeks ago at Home Depot, and decided this was the week I was going to refresh my overwintering succulents and create a new succulent bowl for the patio. Of course I can’t put it outside for another couple of months, but I wanted to start some new ones from cuttings, so they need some time to establish a bit of a root system before I put them out again. 
I brought this container in last fall. The “top” plant in this planter overwintered beautifully and even bloomed prolifically indoors. The Firestick in the middle survived, just, but that is enough to be getting on with, haha.  The bottom one has just one piece left alive and did not appreciate indoor life one bit.

I brought all my succulents to the garage, cleaned them up, and took these are the cuttings.

I had a couple pots of single plants as well that were getting leggy, so took fresh cuttings from them as well.

These are the refreshed containers I ended up with.  I won’t water them for a couple days to let the cuttings seal over, but then I will start to water lightly, and then give them a good soaking in a couple weeks, followed by normal watering schedule (not too often).
