For the Love of Growing

April 10th, 2021

I was very fortunate that at an early age my mother recognized and supported my love of growing plants. At age 6 she gave a 10' x 10' plot that I could do whatever I wished.   Being in Africa where succulents were varied and abundant and easy to propagate I couldn't wait to get out of school to see the new developments in my plot.  When I moved up to Atlas Peak I resumed my plot which features any species from around the world, this year I added several strange-looking succulents, one of which is the octopus agave from Mexico featured in the photo.
