I LOVE MY PLANTS
CALAMONDIN ORANGE TREE
The Calamondin Orange Tree was introduced to the United States in the 1900s. It is one of the only citrus trees that can withstand cold weather, and is hearty up to 20 degrees F. During the colder months, a Calamondin Orange Tree can survive indoors, which makes it a perfect container plant! It is such a beautiful plant and it smells absolutely wonderful, it is just as fragrant as jasmine. The fruit is quite fragrant too, it releases a citrus scent if you lightly squeeze it! I can't wait until they ripen!
This year I figured out the secret to successfully propagating succulents.
Leave them alone! Exactly the opposite of what I'd like to do! I want to check on them 10 times a day to see if just maybe they grew in the last hour!
They are the most low maintenance things to propagate EVER! If they look dry, you can spray them gently with a spray bottle but not more than once every 5-7 days, if that. Leave them out of the sun, and most definitely leave them out of direct sunlight!

P.S. I LOVE YOU BUMBLE BEES, HONEY BEES, & BUTTERFLIES
One of my goals for 29 in 29 was to plant things that would benefit bees and butterflies! I am so happy to say that it has been a total success. In my backyard there are always at least 30 - 40 bees, of all different types! There were even some hummingbirds, in fact I stared a hummingbird right in the face and saw its belly. It was a completely magical experience!
