Favorite Plants and Why We Love Them

This month, we will be exchanging stories about how and why we became involved with succulent plants.

Bring your favorite plant, a plant that has taxed your patience, or a plant about which you have a question.

This is a chance to enthrall your fellow enthusiasts with the details of how you raised that magnificent ribbon winner from a tiny seed or seedling, to commiserate over an ailing favorite, or to get the advice needed to bring a plant around or even turn it into a show stopper.
