These gorgeous Aeonium, native to the Canary Islands, are 4-6" in diameter and can grow to be 10 inches in diameter!
They are in the Crassula family and generally produce a solitary apple-green colored rosette. Leaves fan out in winter and close up in tight rounded balls in the summer, indicating they do not want to be watered.
Aeoniums do not like hot or dry weather. Therefore, they may go dormant in summer and do not require any water, except in arid conditions. In extreme heat, their leaves will curl to prevent excessive water loss. Growing them in moist shade will keep them growing, but their true growth season is winter to spring, when temperatures are cool, 65 to 75 °F (18 to 24 °C), and damp. In the winter, only water whenever the soil has dried out. Test by poking your finger down into the soil an inch or two (2.5 to 5 cm). Too much moisture or allowing them to sit in wet soil will cause the roots to rot.
*A regular potting mix is better than a mix specifically for cacti and succulents since Aeonium need some moisture. If you are growing them in containers, repot every 2 to 3 years with fresh potting soil.
Feed during the growing season with a half-strength balanced fertilizer every month or so. Do not feed while dormant.
***SHIPS BARE ROOT*** The plant may appear dry or stressed when you receive it. Simply plant it in a pot and leave at bright location without direct sunlight for a few days. Then you can begin watering the plant, gradually introducing more sunlight, and watching it thrive.
