Surprise Success With Echeveria Propagation

I've been shaking the dried flower stems of Echeverias everywhere, hoping to get a seedling or two.  Not at all a careful or deliberate effort.  Finally...do you see them?  They are tiny:

How about now?

It would have been nice if I remembered what Echeveria's flower I shook in that little pot already occupied by another Echeveria, but I don't.  Still, pretty cool!  I'm kind of thrilled.

  5. I always feel like I must be doing something right when there are babies - whether it was deliberate or not!

  6. That's great dear Hoover, those little babies look so sweet. I sprinkled the dried seeds from my marigold flowers and had some new plants come up, always exciting.
