• Sometimes it can be really difficult if you want to grow succulents while living in Germany. At least during the winter months where all of the normal plants need to stay in the greenhouse. Good to have Sempervivum arachnoideum as an allrounder.
Oreocereus celsianus. Naturally occurring at high altitudes in Argentina, Bolivia and Peru these hairy things have been dubbed the Old Man of the Andes. It's believed that the white hairs are to help protect the plant from harsh sun exposure and extreme temperatures.
These were some rescue plants I was gifted and even though they havent grown at all they sure look a whole lot better than when they arrived.
