Repotting Aeoniums

Among my favorite plants are the exotic forms of succulents - they make excellent container specimens.

If you like growing plants, but don’t really have a lot of time to care for them, I encourage you to consider growing succulents. Succulents are so easy to maintain and are able to survive prolonged drought because they store moisture in their fleshy stems, roots, and leaves. A general rule of thumb is to repot succulents every two-years to provide more room and fresh fertile soil. Recently, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, took the opportunity to repot a good number of succulents called Aeoniums that form beautiful rosettes of fleshy, spoon-shaped leaves.
