The Green Thumb Test

Two weeks ago I shared that one of my succulents was growing a baby. Since then this little offset has grown nearly 2 inches and I decided that I wanted to try transplanting it to its own bit of soil. I couldn't find much information on the interwebs about how to do this, so I checked out this book from my local library. I followed the author's instructions--carefully detach the offset and pack into moistened cacti soil. 

Now, the hardest part: wait a couple of weeks before watering (to stave off root rot). *Fingers crossed that it will set down some roots and be happy.*
