|Sad this morning ..I saw the stem of my aeonium that is trying to bloom properly, laying down close to the ground, luckily the sedum rubrotinctum container sort of caught it.|
This stem has been moving around, like a dizzy person....and now the stem is broken..but the good thing is, I can see the stem is fresh, so the stem is not rotting..just maybe the lowest break point.
I have dabbed some cinnamon on that cut point.
And here is the broken stem..I will be chopping them off into segments..will see how it goes..
Stem is firm..not sick..haaay..something awful and new..luckily it is Spring, and weather is warming up, so it I am hoping it will be a quicker recovery later when I chop down the broken stem.

|Ok, you win, Tarev for growing, domestically, the longest aeonium stem and for having the biggest aeonium head on a pretty long stem too...at least that I have seen!|

|Saw a video in youtube where the aeonium cuttings were propped on inverted clay containers, so the rosettes will not be too deformed if kept laying down..so am doing the same for now, till the cut ends heal a bit.|

|Thanks Bev...and thanks to that youtube video hehe. |
I also tied the other Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop' to a stake, which has been moving..I do not want another broken stem.
Just really thankful it is Spring.
