My Little Succulent Garden

It's not much, but it's all I've got. They're easy to care for, but you still have to care for them! Somehow, I failed to revive 2 of them.
Dead Succulent
The chosen replacements are: Crassula "Baby Necklace" and Aeonium Haworthii v Kiwi.
New Succulents
I love them both, but I think the Crassula "Baby Necklace" is one of my new favorite plants, ever. The day I got it, I took pictures of him and was showing him off, like he was one of my children. I was (am) proud mama of that little guy.
My Little Succulents
All potted up and ready to go. Yay.

i have owned a baby necklace for a few weeks now, and i agree with you, it is one of my favorite plants, right up there with the pedal plant. i have killed succulents by overwatering in the past, so i was careful with this one. last time i watered it was about a week ago. today i came home, and all of the stems were kind if droopy. granted, there is a slight chance that my cat had something to do with it, but at 16 lbs he usually doesn't stop at bending plants, he breaks them. i watered again, but i am not sure it was the right things to do. any suggestions?

Mine actually did the same soon after I got it too. I just blamed it on gravity. My baby necklace is long gone now, but I do have a trio of cacti that have been holding up for about 2 years now.. and the trick there has been to put them right in front of the window, where they get lots of sunshine. Good luck with your baby necklace! Please keep me posted!
