How to Propagate Sempervivium ‘Dea’

Sempervivium ‘Dea’  can be propagated easily from offsets. Each “hen” (mother plant) will produce a large number of “chicks” (offsets), which can then be removed from the mother plant and potted or added to arrangements.

Offsets

‘Dea’ will produce small rosette offsets. Cut the offsets off from the main stem with a sharp, sterile knife or scissors. Allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before laying on well-draining soil.

Practical uses

Sempervivum arachnoideum ‘Dea’ is a great succulent to use as part of a “green roof.”
