Dead Pipe Jade

Friday 05/02/2008 1:27 PM

Think I'm going to go on a dead plant photo trip for a few posts.

Here is my favoritest jade plant ever. I took a particularly curvy jade plant a few years ago and threaded it through this old rusted elbow of pipe. It grew beautifully and sprouted a couple separate stalks through the surrounding soil.

Then I had to learn the harsh lesson of what freezing temperatures can do to water-filled succulents. My own fault. I could have brought them in — easily. But I had dodged so many bullets in previous winters that I thought my plants were impervious.

Lost about 25% of my crop.
