Once again, thanks for the valuable information. Treating plugs in this way when they arrive makes the difference between them growing info beautiful plants or just sitting there until they die. You can certainly tell by your pictures that this is the way to do it!

Thank you Chris. I have to admit I learned the hard way. Last year was the first time I received plants in plugs. Thank fully I learned my lesson before any of the died. I dug them up and cleaned all the plug material and replanted. They all took off growing immediately.

Your welcome Stormy. Many gardeners already know about handling plugs, for me it was a new experience. I am so glad I figured it out before I lost any plants.

Thank you Catherine. So much to learn and so little time. I think of you ever time I go out to my new alpine bed where I planted the wonderful little species tulipa amongst my sempervivum. I look forward to next spring and their beautiful little blooms adding color to the bed.
If any of you want to find some awesome species tulip to grow with your hardy sempervivum and sedum, go check out Catherine's Cubit. http://cubits.org/Tulipa/
