I am perplexed - I have a goodly number of single hens and they are not reproducing. I have had them since early May
do I have to wait all winter? I do have a Rubin that is trying to populate the world. But others just sit there.

|Generally in their second or third year. It depends on the variety. |
Some pump out offsets like crazy, others will put out maybe one or two a year after a couple of years. I have one species semp whose name is escaping me at the moment since 2009 and have only received maybe two offsets total among 4 or 5 rosettes. I took other steps to increase them last year because I was worried about flowering. I think it is S. degenianum, a very nice looking species.
Be patient. Soon you will be overrun with the cackling and need earplugs.

You took steps??? Is there a fertility product for semps?
I will try to be patient and allow them to mature at their own rate... but looking at all the pretty pictures makes it really hard

|When they get going you will look back and wonder why you ever worried about them producing offsets.|
