The Q&A Archives: Sedums

Question: I have cut a sedum when transplanting it to my new planter (garden). If I put it in water will it grow roots? And If it does is there any special thing to do to make them grow roots? And is there any special thing to do to keep them really healthy?

Answer: Sedums like soil on the dry side so it may not root in water for you but it should root if you simply stick it into moistened potting soil. Set it in a sunny place and water periodically to keep the potting soil from completely drying out. You'll know it has rooted when you see new growth.

To keep sedums healthy, plant them where they will be in full sunshine all day. Water deeply once each week to encourage deep root growth. Aside from that, sedums are reasonably easy to grow. Enjoy!
