Wow that’s a lot of filtering going on in that photo of a mixed succulent terrarium with some sand design action too. In case you were wondering, I overused Snapseed in that there photo. Enjoy!
Here’s a slightly less filtered photo of a Sarracenia minor. But only slightly less filtered! Shock.

Grayson St, Berkeley
Aeoniums in a potted succulent garden. Arctostaphylos morroensis Morro Manzanita
Native to California
Sun: Full Sun
Water: Low, summer-drought Size: 6t x 8w.
Endangered in its native range in Southern Cal., it grows well coastal gardens throughout the state. Lavender flowers with red berries.
Aeonium “Voodoo” is a big-head version of the classic “Schwartzkopf” or Black Rose Aeonium. Big head indeed. These are it’s winter colors. Nice!
Derby St, Berkeley
amazing flowers 💐 and giant trunks and amazing thick spines. Nice! And they grow them in Berkeley right along the streets.
They are in the former Bombax family, with other succulent bottle trees, which is now the Bombax subfamily (Bombacoideae) of the
mallow family, Malvaceae. Wow! That means it’s a giant tree that is closely related to these delicate and gorgeous California Native perennials. Sweet.
We make these high-quality succulent terrariums so you don’t have to. They are ready to go. Ready to give as gifts. Ready to water and grow and be your favorite thing ever. This one is by Pia
San Pablo Ave, Berkeley
Agave attenuata and an Aloe ciliaris in bloom.
It’s November already? It must be time for Mixed Succulents, Terrariums, Hanging Wall Panels, and Succulent Wreaths. Yes it is.
And here we see the start of the November season with a fancy mixed pot. How fancy? I count 3 lovely little succulents in one locally made hypertufa pot. Is that a Sedum? yes it is! and there’s a Sedeveria and a Crassula too. So that’s good.
