Tree Aloe

Mariposa St., San Francisco

That’s a nice Aloe marlothii hanging out in the Dogpatch. Nice? Just nice? No no sorry no, I meant awesome. Gorgeous. Fancy.

Cactus San Francisco

It’s San Francisco’s latest Cactus garden up in the air at the Salesforce Park and that’s a San Pedro cactus and there’s an agave, oh and a yucca…. Nice!

San Francisco Succulents

Hi! Thanks for your help today! Hope our new friends thrive in San Francisco.
Nina and Dexter


Can you name them all? I’ll give you a start: Aeonium, Sedum, Crassula, Echeveria, Aloe, Portulacaria and another Sedum.

Agave, San Francisco


A bloomed out Agave in Union Square. I took the photo while facing the sun, so I then added a bunch of filters to hide the fact I was facing into the sun. And then I revealed my secret to you anyway!

Echeveria San Francisco

Embarcadero Center, San Francisco

These Echeveria and Cyclamen are right outside my dentist’s office. Is that a good thing?

Succulence San Francisco

The Succulence San Francisco

If you haven’t been to Succulence in San Francisco then you must not live in San Francisco because if you live in San Francisco and read a succulent focused Cactus Blog like this one then you will have already had to have been to Succulence in Bernal Heights.

They have display windows where they get to put together nice creative displays. We don’t have windows at Cactus Jungle, just a gate.

The Succulence San Francisco 2

Tequila Agave at Tres Agaves on Townsend St., San Francisco. We’ve sold them a number if Tequila Agaves but Hap doesn’t think this one is ours.

I hope they’ve reinforced the unreinforced brick building before they moved in.

San Francisco Succulents

I still go into San Francisco to see my dentist and what do I see but new Succulent bowls, mostly Echeveria, at the Embarcadero Center. They look very freshly planted, so we’ll see how well they’ve done next time I visit – in 6 months of course.

Nice succulents. I see Echeveria and Echeveria and more Echeveria. Maybe a Pachyveria too.


It’s the SF Orchid Show and Sale!

No, not today. It’s next weekend. This here is a friendly reminder to put it on your calender.

It may not be a fancy poster, but it is a fancy show.

Wedding Succulent Terrariums

I see the Succulent Terrariums we made for our friends’ wedding at the de Young Museum came out nicely. Everyone was taking photos of the happy couple – so many cell phone cameras! – but I focused on the Succulent Terrariums. For you. Always for you!

San Francisco Succulents

The crew finished up a garden in San Francisco last week. Here’s a snapshot at the end of the day.

San Francisco Succulents

It was a short trip to the city to get a haircut, but I did catch these sedums doing really well in a window box on Market Street.

Clearly, I don’t get out enough.
