I have a pot of S. Rubrotinctum 'pork & beans' and 'brown beans'.They are potted in a 4" pot,i am getting all my plants ready to come in and I try to pot things together that i can to make room other wise i will never get all my babies inside!!!

I was wondering do these Sedums grow straight up or do they need room to lay over to multiply or have babies?I have one other one in the top of a strawberry pot and it has laid over.They grow red roots down their stems & when they get to the soil it pulls them down.

So any advice on what to pot them in?With other plants that it won't bothher having the sedums growing under them? Thumb of 2012-09-28/jojoe/c340ea

Hi jojoe,

From my experience here, they grow mounding and upwards..mine is always outdoors in full/partial sun so it keeps growing upwards.

thanks,i have them potted correctly to bring them in & put under lights,i guess.I don't want my succulents to get leggy or whatever they do without enough sun.This is the first year growing this type of succulents and not sure about bringing them in.Stop feeding,as much light as i can manage & hold back water as long as i can??? Confused

This is also the first year using the long grow lights.i always just put the plant lights that fit my lamps into all my lamps in dark spots of the house.Succulents are going to need more than that so i bought long grow light.

Our weather is still nice,they aren't coming in any time soon except rain storms.
