With warmer temps, more light, and a mix of sun and rain, spring is on the march.

Some unusual buggers in this old vintage pot. Starting at the top in the image above, we have:

Sulcorebutia Cylindrica Crucensis
Copiapoa Laui Lau

Obregonia Denegrii (a true cactus)
“Maori Doll” Euphorbia (euphorbias are technically not a cactus)

Here are a couple groupings of succulents shown in large jars – a layer-cake of soil, rock, and glass “ice” cubes.

This setup creates an interesting effect. Small amounts of water sometimes pool at the bottom, which humidifies the soil from below when exposed to the sun – a kind of sealed greenhouse effect. Lots of moss forming around the soil as a consequence.

Succulents include the tall euphorbia on the left.
