What are these brown spots on succulent plants?
When you have a Master Gardener in the family, you get questions like this. It’s sort of like having a doctor in the family. They get asked medical questions. I get the plant diagnosis!

This weekend, my gardening fun was replanting an amaryllis bulb. Longtime readers of Home Garden Joy may remember my series detailing my amaryllis’ growth and bloom. The parent bulb is still growing strong…and from that $5 Walmart bulb I now have 10 plants! Here’s how I divided and replanted an amaryllis bulb.
