    grasshopper on my gollum

    I have a succulent, common name Gollum, that grows as fast as weed. I have made multiple plotted plants from it and I just don’t have room for them anymore so now I just trim all to keep them under control and throwing all the cuttings away.

    So my question: is there something useful I can do with the cuttings?

    I feel terrible throwing all away. I wish there was a some sort of medicinal use or bio-diesel use for it. any ideas? Gollum is most closely related to the jade plant but it grows like its on crack !


    Hi Rene, any plant parts make great compost! I throw everything on there, and don’t feel the slightest bit of guilt; the pieces I cut off aren’t wasted and they go on to provide nutrients to other plants.

    Alternatively, you could put an ad in the paper or on Craigslist, and give them away (or sell them!)

    I wonder if there are any animals that would eat it? Just a thought…the grasshopper seems to like it!

    Hope that helps,

    Guerilla Gardening
    by: Daniel

    How about donating them to a guerrilla gardening group, or better yet, have the fun of going around and planting them in vacant lots, on median strips or in planters that have a bare spot. You could start a new trend!
