Louisville Succulents

The <a href="https://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1697&amp;entry_id=1500" title="http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071205/FEATURES08/71205036/1010/FEATURES" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071205/FEATURES08/71205036/1010/FEATURES’;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Courier Journal</a> reprints an old column, seemingly every year now, that gives houseplant advice. Like this:<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">Succulents. Most are pretty easy to keep going. There are lots of succulent desert-type holiday mixed gardens out there.<br />
<br />
The main succulents this year are the new Calandiva series of Kalanchoe with more spectacular, roselike flowers that hold for almost two months.</span><br /></div><br />The column was originally printed in 2005, so do you think the &quot;new&quot; calandivas are still the hot new plant? Come by the nursery some day and find out for yourself. (Hint: the older style, less-rose-like Kalanchoe blossfeldiana are all the rage this year.) Anyway, shouldn’t an editor have checked the column for dated info before they reprinted it as current? I’m just saying.<br /><br />
