Sempervivum tectorum-Common Houseleek
Full sun. Perfect for a sunny window. Needs well drained soil mix and a balanced fertilizer, ideally 20-20-20. Reduce water in winters
Sempervivum tectorum is a evergreen, perennial, mat-forming succulent that typically forms rosettes (up to 4 inches / 10 cm across) of 50-60 thick glabrous leaves up to 3 inches/7.5 cm long, that are sometimes purple-tipped. Rosette foliage typically grows up to 4 inches (10 cm) tall. The mother rosette spreads in all directions by horizontal stems to form offsets. In summer, leafy, pubescent, upright flowering stalks rise from the mother rosette to as much as 12 inches (30 cm) tall topped with cymes of red-purple flowers
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.
You can fertilise your succulent once a month.
Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
