Sedum (also known as Stonecrop) is a sub-genus in the Carssulaceae succulent family. With more than 400 different varieties Sedum boast a large spectrum of size, color and habit. Our assortments have been chosen for their diverse appearance, but also their similarity in growth habit. You will find these assortments do well as trailing plants and ground covers. In recent years Sedum has been used in roof coverings known as green roofs where they are preferred over grass because of their longevity as a plant and vigorous growing habit.
Grow succulents pots on the dry side in a very well-drained soil. They store water in their leaves and do not need to be watered as often as other plants. We recommend using a water soluble feed every two weeks at 150 ppm N. Do not allow the plant to stay saturated or you will develop root and stem rot. Maintain a pH between 5.8-6.2.
Sedum does not require pinching unless you need to control them to stay in a designated area for growing.
Space your succulents as needed based on their size. They can be grown in spaced pots for retail or used in combination with other plants in combination planters.
Plant growth regulators are not necessary.
Succulents have no real pest problems.
Succulents are not prone to many diseases but don't oversaturate the soil. If the plant sits in moist soil for an extended amount of time, you could end up with root rot, stem rot or botrytis. Botrytis grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis and root rot are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label's instructions.
