    I just started my very first succulent garden with a few plants I could afford to purchase. Neighbors and friends have also contributed. I never turn down a free plant regardless of what type it is. The neighbor gave me a small chunk of aloe and said just stick it in the ground. I did with love and well wishes for a long future. Within about a week it started turning brown and within a short time it started looking quite dead and rotten. She said to leave it alone and water as needed. In about 2 weeks it started getting green again and it's growing very well. I have since then "adopted" several aloe and have gone through the same stages. Good life lesson to let nature take it's course.

    I live in the high desert in CA. I have the hardest time keeping my succulents alive. The indoor ones almost always die within 6 months. Love your videos and I hope they can help me stop killing my succulents!

    Really good information.We have some real high temp here. This summer we did not have high humidity. I have several of these outside already but more inside. I will move those outside next
    Summer. Thank you for this information.

    I have all these in my Phx home. I have a section of my yard that's mostly a collection of various aloes along with trailing purple lantana. Love Aloes! Several didn't make it thru the summer this year. I don't think it was the heat that got them as much as all the excess rain we got this year that melted them.
