Came across this on Facebook today. Apparently there is a fungal disease that's affecting semps. I believe this is from Europe so hopefully we don't get it here in the US. Scroll down about 4 posts on the page to see pictures and symptoms. Use Google Translate to see in English. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sempervivum-Listede/331486890...

You can see information on this fungus here: http://stalikez.info/fsm/semp/site/patfg_gb.php?clc=55&zc=Ae...

This fungus live naturally with Sempervivum in the nature. If you have this fungus in your wild rosettes , you must delete these plants to avoid the propagation in your collection.
This fungus is not very bad and easy to eradicate

I often get wild rosettes (or I collect ) and I only encountered the problem twice in 10 years.
