Flowering plant.

This plant flowered a few weeks ago.

I forget what it's called, but I believe it's a succulent. I have had a plant like this for years and never seen it flower. In fact the one I had before this died. Probably due to over-watering. That's how I accidentally kill most succulents. This succulent has been living on the porch though. Usually I keep them inside but these three here (other two not pictured) have lived on my porch all summer long. Which I think is why they are thriving. I was doing some reading and I guess they like to get cooler at night, like they would in the desert. Too bad they are going to have to come inside soon, since it's getting too cold.

I visited my family this weekend and took lots of pictures around my parents and grandparents place. I can't wait to share them!

  1. I kill all plants, EXCEPT Bamboo. Clealry, this plant is resilient, so i have been recommending it to pretty much anyone that will listen. Plus, it's really beautiful. No flowering like yours, though.
