Happy Mother's Day to me.

I spluged on myself and bought one of these Stack-A-Pots that I have drooled over for years.
(three separate, stackable pots)
I also bought some sweet new succulents to go in my new pots.

Monanthes polyphylla
(Sorry for fuzzy pic) This is SO cute!!

Crassula 'Caput Minima'
 Love this purple-ish action!!

Kalanchoe tomentosa cv. 'Chocolate Soldier'
A fuzzy kalanchoe. too cool!

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana Hybrid
These new brilliant Kalanchoe blooms are amazing! 
I may move this one down to a lower level side pocket, I'm afraid it will take over the smaller succulent babies on the top level. 
(someday they will make a BRILLIANT purple kalanchoe and it WILL be mine;)

Separate pots - add dirt- and plants!

Plectranthus Vicks Plant (top left), various succulent leaves and Burro Tail (bottom left)
Top dressed with some clay pellets I have...

Wa-la!! Don't know what I'm planting in the other stackable pots, the box says I can get another set and go six high...

hmmm, six pots with three plant pockets each equals 18 planting spots!!!
{this will be an inside planting at the camper, I want easy, low water knock-outs, I think I'm off to a great start!!}

Fertilizer Friday? I love it! Super idea! I love these stack able pots. You are off to a good start. You might want to get a pretty echeveria to put in the left side there. By the way, that kalanchoe is going to get pretty big! My grew and grew like crazy! So is this the top and the other two you put on the bottom? I have looked at these also, kind of like a different kind of strawberry pot.

Hey you have a very handsome family and lots of grandkids! Awesome!

I've never seen those stackable pots. I can't wait to see your finished product. I'll bet it's going to be stunning.
