All my leaves are starting to grow downward instead of up.....What am I doing wrong? They are hen and chicks and they are bubbling up in the middle from the leaves starting to grow downward. They look funny....., but still pretty.

Probably etoliating. Cause is likely not enough light for the amount of water. Can you show a pic and tell us more about their growing conditions? If etoliation, give more light and less water.

Welcome to ATP Gsmith! The way you describe it, it also could be the beginnings of blooming, where do you live? If it is still warm then you could have semps bloom this time of year! I tip my hat to you.

Yes, Welcome! to ATP and to our sempervivum forum. I have seen what you have described and wonder if the coloring
has changed also?

This is a GREAT thread about etoliating semps: The thread "Etoliated sempervivum" in Sempervivum and Jovibarba forum
