    They will, most assuredly grow & grow & you will need this pic to remind you of just how small they once were, Pixie. :lol2:

    We, also, have the "Violet Queen" echeveria & as it doesn't grow as large as the "Topsy Turvy", it can get overtaken. Though the "Topsy Turvy" isn't as bad as the graptoveria. :whistle:

    Have just taken some pics of our succulents & cacti & shall be posting them shortly. They certainly have grown & grown.

    Our various succulents have grown so much it has become hard to know where one container starts & another ends.They have all blended into one large "garden".

    The graptoveria tricolour, in particular, is really galloping over the place & is spreading so fast. It has an interesting way of propagating itself. If a leaf falls off, & they do readily, a small rosette-like plant starts to grow at the stem end of the leaf. The tiny plant lives off the nutrients in the leaf until it can set down roots & grow on its own.

    Also spreading across boundaries is the echeveria "Topsy Turvy". It is trying to establish itself in the cactus container. :lol: The echeveria "Violet Queen" is being rather overwhelmed by the other two. The sedum clavatum "Giant Stone Crop" seems to have stopped its spreading for now. The aloe juvenna is also growing rapidly. It has recovered well from the severe pruning I gave it a few months ago, as has the senecio "Blue Chalk Fingers".

    These images were taken yesterday. Haven't taken any pics of these succulents for quite a while & they sure have grown.

    The echeveria "Topsy Turvy" & the senecio "Blue Chalk Fingers". Underneat them both is a "Violet Queen" echeveria which I must rescue, somehow.

    Thank you, Pixie. It is my pleasure. They are really fun plants which I do tend to take for granted, I'm afraid. :blush2:

    The graptoveria flowers are nearly finished & there seems to be round shaped seed pods in the centre of them. In this pic can be seen echeveria "Violet Queen" at the top & sedum clavatum "Giant Stone Crop" taking up most of the pic. :D

    Thanks, Pixie. :D We only have a few succulents but they are trying to take over. They are growing & growing & spilling out from their pots over onto the pots of other plants. :lol:

    We need more ROOM. :lol!:

    They are a lovely coral colour, Pixie. Cannot wait for these to get to that stage as there are quite a few of them. We are having an east coast low weather system at the moment & have had rainy conditions for the past few days. The poor flowers are loathe to open any further & they are much the same, today, as they were when I took those pics 5 days ago. :lol3:

    Hopefully, they will open soon. :D
