I started the mammoth task of removing the mushy leaves from my semps and look what I found! This S. Rosie bloomed very late and I never removed the bloom stalk. Today I found a rosette growing amongst the spent flowers! These guys just get more and more resourceful!

And right there by your finger, do I see a green seed capsule?
I am just starting with these Sempervivums, I only have (blooming stage) the common ones in the garden, but I never saw a capsule.
I was wondering... WHERE are the seeds I started buying. It can't be in those dried up flowers...
Can anyone show me a seed capsule?
