Sempervivums do well in shallow containers. You can even plant in a large saucer. Be creative!

Hi Earthchild, and welcome to ATP! Welcome! Looks like the succulent bug bit you. Big Grin Very nice collection of plants, and I love all the pretty containers you used also. Are you located in an area where they can remain outside all year?

Hope you come and join us in the sempervivum forum http://garden.org/forums/view/chooks/ and also the cactus and tender succulents forum http://garden.org/forums/view/cacti/

Yes, the succulent bug did bite me too!
I was into growing tropical fruits, flowers, bulbs and vegetables.....now I am just fascinated by the color & variety in succulents.
I must apologize for the quality of my photos. They are taken through my old I-phone. As my teenage old son points out, "What else do you expect from your phone camera!" Big Grin

I live in Northern California, Sempervivums should be okay in the outdoors all year. To give my Echeverias protection from the little frost we get I have planted them under the protection of some taller plants and our roof awning. They get plenty of sunlight here but are protected from frost. This will be the first winter for them, I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will be okay.
