Morning everyone. One of the two new rosettes on my #aeonium-zwartkop is growing much faster than the other one, in fact the smaller one doesn’t appear to be growing at all 🤔🖤 #succulentsunday

Morning everyone. One of the two new rosettes on my #aeonium-simsiixzwartkop is growing slightly faster than the other one even though they are both still tiny. I’ve been trying to find some more info about them other than what I already know and found this article fitted the bill particularly about the root system. I don’t know if it will help anyone else but I found it interesting 🤔 https://surrealsucculents.co.uk/welcome-to-the-wonderful-world-of-aeoniums/ #succulentsunday 🖤

Morning Jane, a really informative article. I was gifted an Aeonium, grown from a cutting, for my last birthday and worried about it ever since! This dropping leaves habit thoroughly confounded me, remains to be seen if it’s still with me for my next birthday😂

Thanks for the article Jane, I bought a young Zwartkop from Beth Chatto's garden a couple of years ago but sad to say it's not doing at all well. I'm determined to keep it alive if I can, it doesn't seem to make any root system so that article is helpful. I had more success growing some mixed Aeoniums from seed, they're slow growing but doing OK 🌱

You're welcome Sue, I really don't find them easy either. Mine are in pots that to me seem to be the right size but are obviously not so I'm going to get a couple of new ones to give the roots more space to develop and see if that helps 🤔. I've never even thought about growing from seed, I'd definitely like to give that a go so thank you to you too 🥰 @churchfarmgarden

Morning everyone, have a super #succulentsunday. My #aeonium-zwartkop has only ever had two branches with one rosette on each so I cut off one branch (which I repotted) and the original plant now has new growth, the one you can see and there’s another one on the other side. I’m so happy that my leap of faith appears to have worked 🖤

Morning everyone. My aeonium zwartkop has only ever had two florets so I read up on how to make it branch and tried something I read on the RHS website https://www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/rosemoor/rosemoor-blogs/rosemoor/november-2015/care-of-aeoniums and it appears to be working. Eventually the new floret should form a branch and grow away 🤞. Have a super Sunday #aeonium-zwartkop #indoorplant #succulentsunday
