Succulents Hanging Corner

I had posted before on this succulents sections concerning these Donkey's Tail & Ghost Plant.
Somehow I never seemed to get enough of their beauty in camera. These untouchables are truly thorn-less yet they here are so sensitive many ways.
They are not hardy to begin with and die immediately when watering is more than they can take. Something that I dare not take the risk in changing anything but rather leave them alone and just enjoy the beauty they provide.


I still haven't really figure their true name yet.
its either Mezoo Trailing Red Livingstone Daisy (Dorotheanthus)
or  Baby Sunrose, Ice plant (Aptenia Cordifolia)

Its a mixture of succulent and hanging plant and that it had started to bloom for the first time after a year or so. This cutting is passed to be by a friend who no longer wants to keep this plant (He is now totally focusing on orchids and there rest of the species had end up as gifts and give-away's)

They seemed to do well on the pebbles too. I'm experimenting on a broken vine and see if they crawl and take root and grow invasively. That way I would have fast growing plant without taking much of a cutting from the main plant.

Together with this collection you will find Creepy Charles (Pilea nummularifolia) very much appearing to be like a mint plant. (I had written about it on my earlier post)

This species is known as a Curtain Vine (Cissus Sicyoides)
Its a want not - waste not plant.
I find it hard to place it properly in the way I want it to be. I have to figure out something that gives this plant an optimum position that make do with portray the beauty of those hanging tendrils.

The other two more hanging plants are the ones I had not identified yet had found resident in my garden. Hopefully I manage to find their ID to check their profiles.

I had placed the Phalaenopsis Doritis here for best shaded light for their flower spikes to appear. So far they are doing so well without showing any immediate signs of stress. I had seen these ones are left un-taken cared off in most of the gardens around my neighbourhood.

It is indeed considered a hardy plant as they do constantly bloom.

Hello from Texas. Beautiful pics of your plants... we just had our first winter freeze here, and everything is looking a little beat up in my garden.

I forgot to mention, the plant in your hand in the photograph, that you were trying to identify outs a Sedum, possibly Sedum kamtschaticum. I'm not definite about the species though... there are several varoations in that species.
