Hi to everybody reading this,

I llive in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and I'm one sempervivum crazy woman. Have more than 1.000 different plants, but I am still looking for more.

I grow lost labeled varieties and - of course - labeled cultivars and species. I am always willing to swap plants.

I am also a editor of international sempervivum swappers list with free adds. Copies are distributed by email and are also free. In vol. 2 there are more tha 30 adds from all over the world with more than 2.000 cultivars and species listed. Vol. 3 of the list is due to early January, 2007 and all of you that want to place an add, do mail me your list by the end of 2006.

Best wishes, Renata

Will also swap lost labels sempervivums (semps with no name) - have cca 250 different! Special offer for swapping unnamed (lost labels) species and cultivars in 2007 - you get doubled number of semps you sent in exchange (for example, you sent 10 & get 20, you send 26 & get 52 etc.!) Swap sedums, too. Also buying semps at reasonable price!

Hello renee. I wonder would you be so good as to post up some tips on Sempervivum growing, propagating, feeding etc. It would really add to this thread. Wink and stop it getting removed I reckon.

I m afraid no one here has interest in Sempevivums - so what is the point of writing about cultivation?!

Sempervivum cv. Tambora, photo May 2008

Breeder: Martin Haberer, Germany, year of introduction 1984

Sempervivums are members of Crassulaceae family, a frost hardy succulents that will stand any sort of neglect ... That's why they are doing so well in any rock garden.

There are some 70 species (including ex Jovibarbas) and obout 4.000 namred varieties - cultivars.

Sempervivums differ from one another by:
_ diamether,
_ colour (which id different in diffreent part pof the year!),
_ cila and hairs,
_ flower colour (white, yellow, pink and red)

And now a question - how many of you grow sempervivums?

I grow a few. Some very similar in colour and shape to the picture you posted. They don't grow very well for me unfortunatly as parts tend to die back and the centres become loose and tend to fall out with the slightest touch. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Jovibarba x kwediana cw. Pickwick
... looks just like a semp, right?

Birdie, probably too much water (rain, moisture from fog ...) is causing your problem. Semps need soil that dries out completly ....They are unhappy in damp conditions.

I hope you grow them in a full sun or partial shade, Sempervivums are not plants for shade.

The problem you described sound like rot to me. NAy creatures in the soil? Most probably not!

Full sun alright but i think it is the damp irish weather which is doing them in. might try growing some in pots as they should not be so damp.

You might be right.! Try some ordinary or lava pebbles miksed in the soil to make soil lighter and able to dry out faster. I keep all my semps in pots, and I use soil for house plants. Well, and plenty of plastic bags and all sort of plastic stuff to cover themn up when heavy rain come ...

That on the photo is defintely an Echeveria - I can tell from flowers.

Americans (wrongly) call Echeverias hen and chicks, like tjhey call semps, too. And that is the beginning of many mistakes ... the common name "hen and chick" I mean. Same common name for two quite different plants.

For those who enjoy semps:

I now have a sempervivum blog.

See WWW link below (Mod edit)

I also have a new garden, so in 2009 there will be more news.

Happy New Year!
