Sempervivum (also known as Hens and Chicks) are one of the most common types of succulents. The mother (hen) plant grows an underground stem that produces a new (chick) plant. Chicks can be as small as one inch across, while mothers are much larger at 8-12" across. Sempervivum make great container plants, and they can be used in dish gardens and fairy gardens. They prefer to be at room temperature (72 F), which makes them a perfect houseplant. Hens and Chicks do not require much care: as the plants produce flowers, the flowers simply need to be removed as they die, and mothers and chicks will need to be separated to prevent over-crowding.

Our high-quality 50-cell plug trays come ready to transplant into your final container.

Growing Tips

Fertilization

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.

Pinching

Succulents do not require pinching.

Spacing

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.

Height Control

Plant growth regulators are not necessary.

Pests

Succulents have no real pest problems.

Disease

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.

Planting Succulent Liners

  1. We recommend planting 1 starter plant per pot for retail sales. You can also space them in a combination planter to make a product that ready for immediate sales.

  2. Pinching is not required.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
