The number of these little 2 leaf sprouts has more than doubled overnight. There are now 8 instead of 3. Wondering if I should be happy or worried. 😅 #succulent

My succulent seems to be sprouting some babies 🤗🤗🤗🥰🥰❤️❤️❤️ unless there were seeds in the soil my mother gave me. Lol. There are 3 of these little green things growing now. 🤗🥰❤️ #succulent #henandchicks

Looking good! I thought of something you might want to know, if you don't already. Sempervivum are monocarpic, so they die after flowering. If your plant flowers, you should cut off the babies and root them so your plant can live on. 👍

@savannahssucculentgarden thank you! 😃🤗 oh wow. Thank you for letting me know! 😅😅 So just to clarify, “flowering” refers to the babies that are on my plant right now? Those are the things I should cut off and re-plant?

Oh no worries, it's not blooming right now. I'll tag you in one so you can see what the flowers look like. 😊

I got home from a weekend away from my apartment & I was sitting with my succulent by the window & it started making a crackling sound when I turned it around to the other side (thinking that maybe the other side wanted some sun). I’m not sure what this means. Does that just mean it was enjoying the sun and drinking up more water or does that mean it needs water? Advice is welcome & greatly appreciated. Thank you 🙏🏽 I also discovered a regular pinkish worm in the soil. Is that bad for it?

(How often are you watering this plant?) (Do you happen to know what direction that window is facing? -East,North,West,South-)

@savannahssucculentgarden of course! 😃 I’m not very knowledgeable though, since I’m a very new plant mom. Lol. But other than that I’ll answer anything I can 😄

Tbh I haven’t found an exact schedule yet because I’m not 100% sure what I’m doing. But I’ve watered it 3 times I think since I bought it October 27th. It doesn’t really make sense to me that I bought it that recent but that’s the day I took the original photo so I guess that’s when I bought it. But when I watered it, it wasn’t very much. And the window is facing east. I’m also very unsure what temperature I should be keeping my apartment at. It’s at about 70-75° now. @savannahssucculentgarden

Ah okay, that's what it looks like. Overwatering. Let it be dry for a while longer. As far as temperature goes, Sempervivum are some of the toughest succulents. As long as your apartment doesn't get too close to freezing, it will be fine.

@savannahssucculentgarden oh ok thank you! 🙏🏽🙌🏽 do you have any suggestions on the layers for re-potting it. It bought a different planter and would like to put it in there so it can grow but I’m worried I’ll layer the stuff wrong. I read online that most of the time with succulents people use layers of rocks and sand and even some other things in addition to soil and I’m not sure what order that really need to go in, etc

Honestly? I've never done that. I've heard of it being done in terrariums, but that's about it. It's possible that I'm missing something, but my succulents have never complained about lacking layers. I just use a good succulent and cactus soil. Sometimes I mix in extra perlite or gravel. @sarahssassysucculents Do you do layers when you pot succulents?
