Sempervivum Red Beauty Succulent Care

Fortunately, the Red Beauty Serpervivum is easy to grow. It is maintenance-free once the roots are established.


Plant hens and chicks in full or part sun. Full sun conditions will result in the fastest growth and best flowering.


The Red Beauty Sempervivum is adaptable. It can grow well in sandy, rocky, salty soils and more as long as they are well-drained. Organic planting mix is a great choice for potted succulents.


Water deeply once or twice per week for the first couple of months to help your plants establish properly.


Skip over these plants when you fertilize. They are sensitive to too much nitrogen so less is more for hens and chicks.


Divide your Red Beauty Hens and Chicks by cutting off the rooted offsets (chicks) from the main plant (hen).
