Aeonium 'Schwartzcopf'

Aeonium 'Schwartzcopf' (Aeonium canariense (Aeonium))

I brought it indoors for the winter as I'd like it to keep growing. But it's gone ever so 'elongated' in the leaf. Still...nice.

All those long droopy leaves will probably drop off K....don't over water it, we have ours in the conservatory, giving it full sun, but no central heating......

Hmmm.....ok...perhaps t would be happier in the greenhouse do you think? Its just frost free in there at night.

They do need to be frost free all the time.but they won't like central will make them lose their leaves.

Most of Mine are under cover Karen tunnel/ conservatory...
I don't heat them But if it does get very cold I cover them with fleece just to be sure.

Well, in that case I think the best place for them is where they are, and turn off the radiator. Thanks both of you! Greenhouse was down to 0.3 last night, so I cant rely on it being completely frost free if we have a harsh winter.

Good plan to keep it inside Karen it will enjoy being watered a bit over the winter. I water when the under leaves start to dry up.

Thanks for that tip Sandra. I went in earlier this week and found a pile of dry shrivelled up leaves had dropped off.
