My Aeonium collection

Post by Chromaphyo on Fri Oct 24, 2008 5:39 pm

I like Sempervivum but I have also a little collection of Aeonium.
It's a begin for me.
I bought the seeds through the forum ICN (http://www.crassulaceae.net/forum/index.php) and www.rareplants.de
The cultivation is very easy.
Aeonium is very closed to Sempervivum genus but live only in Canary Island, and in Africa.
It is not a hardy genus but A. aizoon, A. simsii, A. smithii, A. spathulatum support a little frost.
Phylogenetic studies have shown that Aeonium genus is the closest kind of Sempervivum genus.

Great collection. I'm getting into Aeonium and also Greenovia (which I think has been synonymized with Aeonium).

Can you give any cultural advice? Particularly with regards to seed sowing (soil mix, cover, fungicide etc) and watering regimes. I've read that a lot of these are winter growers and should be kept dormant in summer.

Great collection!
I also have a few species. Some of them with names and they are bought in botanical garden in Zagreb.
They are really easy to care and I would recommend them to everyone. I will make pictures in spring.

I'm also interested in seed sowing advice.
