Sempervivums Don't Like Wet Feet

Sempervivums do not like their roots to be sitting in water, so make sure your container has sufficient drainage holes. Also, check occasionally to make sure they aren't clogged to ensure continued successful growing.

Oh Gigi, you could grow succulents that we in the northern climates can't grow.
Not sure what part of Florida you live in, but if you get a winter (freezing temps), you could grow many of the sedum and some of the semps.

You are right, the succulents I have don't require a lot of work. I don't know what zone Tampa is but we don't get freezing temp. My DH just bought me another boat ceramic container (light blue), a faux log and the faux stone planters, they are perfect for succulents. All 50% off from JoAnn fabrics. I will post pix in your succulent container 2013 thread in the future, when they are no longer empty :).

Hurray! I can't wait to see them. I really must find out where the shop is in Salem and give it a visit.

Another best place to buy ceramic planters is the "old time pottery".

Wish I could get some going to look so lush. Shrug!

What is that pretty dark purple semp in the bowl on the far right? I'm all ears!

It is really petty. Lovey dubby

A very pretty little NOID. Smiling
I lost the tag many years ago. But I still have some of them.
You will find that the ones that made it from last year will do well for you this year. My favorite time to plant is in early spring. Give them plenty of time to get nice roots going before the harsh summer arrives.

Clean them all up and replant. that's what I've been doing for the last full week.
