  • About Plant- Sempervivum calcareum 'Greenii' is a mat-forming succulent with densely packed rosettes of fleshy sharply pointed leaves. Leaves are gray-green to blue-gray and tipped with deep red or maroon. The thick flowering stalk arises from the center of the rosette and bears pinkish, star-shaped flowers. Sempervivum, commonly known as Houseleeks or Hens and Chicks, are among the most popular succulents. They are exceptionally hardy plants and seem to thrive in cold and hot, low light or intense light.

     

    Sempervivum calcareum 'Greenii' Succulent Care

     

    Light- Full sun. Perfect for a sunny window.

     

    Water- Water during the summer and spring, making sure drainage is immaculate. Reduce water in the winter to monthly.

     

    Temperature- Prefers average summer temps (65°F/18°C - 70°F/21°C). In winter, some varieties can withstand temperatures down to freezing.

     

    Soil- A well-drained succulent mix, with an ideal pH of around 6.0 (slightly acidic).

     

    Fertilizer- Feed with a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the season or weekly with a weak liquid solution. Use a balanced 20-20-20 fertilizer at 1/4 strength on mature plants, and a fertilizer with less nitrogen on young plants. 
     

    Propagation- Sempervivum earned their popular name "Hens and Chicks" from their growth habit. The mother rosette, or hen, sends off numerous offsets, clustering around her base like chicks. These offsets can be easily repotted, or the plants can be left to form a clumping mat.

     

    Repotting- Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot.
