Sempervivum Calcareum

24 reviews   |  
  •  It is a succulent perennial plant that can reach 6 inches (15 cm) tall.

     Its rosettes are beautifully symmetrical with a dome shape. The leaves are blue-green and have pointy burgundy tips.

     Sempervivum calcareum forms dense mats by multiplying via short-stalked offsets.

     In summer, some mature rosettes produce clusters of starry, yellow-eyed, light pink flowers on thick stalks.

     The rosettes that flower will naturally die afterwards, but by this time, the plant has likely produced many offsets that will continue to grow.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  •  Gritty soil, Sandy.

     Full Sun or Partial shade.

       Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Reduce watering to a minimum during winter.

       Temperature: Prefers warm summer temperatures (65ºF/18ºC – 70ºF/21ºC).

     In winter, it can tolerate temperatures down to freezing.
  • Zone 7b: 5 to 10 °F
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** We ship all year round, heat packs are available for purchase in the winter. Please purchase a heatpack if the temperature in your area is below 40F. If your heatpack isn't in the same order with your other plants, please drop us a message, we'll add it for you.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Decent enough

I received a free 2 inch plant with my order of 3 succulents. And that was nice. However, the free plant was on its way out when I received it. Also, I suppose I got what I ordered, however, they are not nearly as vibrant or nice-looking as the photos online. Which is truly my fault and not that of the marketing team. I wish my cactus would’ve come in a little plastic pot like the other succulents instead of wrapped in bubble wrap but it seems to be doing better than the other succulents. I’m not entirely sure this was the best bang for my buck but I had to give it a try. Overall an okay experience. They arrived fairly quickly considering I’m on the other side of the US which is probably why my little string of pearls plant didn’t last. At all. Even after following the instructions on care. Rip. The packaging was cute, though. Except for, of course, the cactus wrapped up in bubble wrap.

I received my plants, but the postal carrier put them in the mailbox instead of leaving them inside the door and they froze. It was 10' that day. Very disappointed.
