Plant Rescue #5

Who would have thought trying to grow dragon's blood stone crop in a strawberry pot during a extremely hot, dry summer would have been so hard.  Doesn't it love it hot and dry? I guess the strawberry pot made it too easy to get dry as I swear most of it went crunchy.  Which is why this is a plant rescue.  I'm bringing it inside to a sunny window while I still have three tiny plants surviving.  Don't strain your eyes trying to find them.

  1. Wow, they have dried out haven't they? Still, you are doing the right thing by bringing them in, where they won't get so heat blasted, and you can keep a better eye on them. Looking forward to seeing them recover!

  2. I tried once to grow this outdoors at our last home. Mine died - it seemed to get too hot/dry - which kinda surprised me, too!

  3. Yes with the extreme heat the bring it in was the best thing. I did that with a couple of plants as they just were too tender to take the prolonged heat.

  4. Most of my sedums do better in some shade, regardless of the dryness...hope it comes back strong for you!

  5. There is hope. Take it out of the sun and put in more shade than sun....and don't overwater.....that should do it:) Good luck!

  7. I know what you are talking about, it has been so hot and dry here I have lost a lot of my plants. The good Lord is watering now . The storm has played it self out in La and we are getting a really good rain. Slow and steady. The good Lord knows best. Good luck with your plant. Try a cube or two of ice each day, it should be water just right.

  8. My dragon's blood stonecrop is looking yucky too!! Granted, it hasn't gotten a lot of extra water. .I have been giving it a little extra lately to provoke it not to die!! Next spring, your little pot will fill back in quickly
