Watering: Don't over water, they like to dry outa little between waterings. Aeoniums have shallow root systems and store water in their leaves and stems. Unlike other succulents, which prefer dryer soil, Aeoniums prefer soil that is often moist but not wet.
Maintenance: Trim back to make the plant even bushier and promote growth of pups.
Dormancy: Triggered by temperature - starting late Summer and regrowth begins late Autumn.
Flowering: Each Rosette is 'Monocarpic' meaning 'once flowering'. Given enough light, flowers can form from the centre of mature rosettes during spring and summer, the rosette will die after flowering so leaf propagation is recommended.
