IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We generally ship Orders placed between Monday and Thursday at noon, the following Monday. When possible, we ship on Wednesdays.
We don't want orders to sit over the weekend.

We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plants out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receiver your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase.
Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when grown.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Sempervivum arachnoidium

Sempervivum arachnoideum are native to higher altitudes in Europe. They form rosettes to 3" in diameter with pale green leaves with hairy margins. Often the rosette is obscured with a dense white "cobweb" appearance. Flowers are star-shaped and pink. In the past, Sempervivums were planted on roofs in Europe and it was believed that Semperivivums had the ability to protect the house from lightning strikes or other attacks. Plant Sempervivum in rock or dish gardens or even strawberry pots. They are one of the few succulents that will grow in colder climates. I sent a tray to upstate New York and was happy to find out they all survived winter 2009. They like filtered light with lots of airflow. Prefers shade during summer dormancy. Water thoroughly when soil dries out. Although very cold tolerant, best to provide frost protection to prevent possible scarring.
