It was one of the plants that was already here when we moved in. We love it. When we had a a few days of rain recently a couple arms fell off. We’re thinking from the weight possibly because these pads can get really heavy. So we separated the pads, let them sit so the cut end can callous and then placed them in some soil. We also cut some other ones off that were growing in an odd direction and these have been sitting here also. We are going to plant them just outside of our wall. This area used to have oleander bushes (I’ll show you some footage of what it looked like here before). The oleanders were pretty and provided a lot of shade but they left so much debris. The leaves and flowers would drop constantly. It left such a mess, we could never keep it clean so we had them removed. Now our goal is to convert our landscape to cactus and succulents so here we go . . . . . .

    poor quality rock quarry having that much dirt! also next time go with 3/4 inch size as this helps minimize dirt. Also never hurts to wash your rock after the truck comes in for the dump run.

    Very nicely done! We planted about the same ones along with some Yucca's and Dasylirion's in Belgium (Zone 8b).
    By the way; is that a Yucca Rostrata in your front yard?
