Aeonium care.

I have a "Aeonium Tabuliforme" plant which has been over wintered in the cold greenhouse. It has lost some of the lower leaves and I now have a bare stem of about 2 inches. Can anyone advise if I repot should I sink the bare stem into the soil or try to leave it above and support the plant in some way as it leans over to one side of the pot ?

    Hi Winifred, I was hoping that someone more experienced with Aeoniums would come along and answer this one....I've asked a few friends who have them, and the general answer seems to be that you should cut off the lanky bit and push it into a new pot of soil, to start a new plant: leaving the old stump to re-sprout.

    Not sure if this is helpful, or not!
