Watering in summer?

Post by illustrator on Sun Jun 24, 2012 4:26 pm

Dear all,

We had a very rainy springtime, then it switched at once to dry and hot. I don't think that this is a problem for houseleeks which are well established, but what to do with small offsets which have few roots? By feeling I would think they need some water, as they shrivel and get much smaller ... What do you do with such plants?

I DO NOT water my semps I keep in the garden, under "the open sky" - and it has been so for years now. No need to do this in central Slovenia.

I agree when it is about established plants, but what about small plants which I got about 3 months ago (mainly unrooted offsets)?

Unrooted offsets torn away from mother plant should be watered!
