detailed seed-starting info below

Tender succulent with curiously shaped chubby leaves, resembling little speckly bisected pebbles. Probably not hardy in a typical Houston winter, but I'm getting ahead of myself – first order of business is to attempt to grow on the tiny seedlings to the point where I can see them without squinting.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
