Hello friends,

I'm new to keeping cactuses. My girlfriend just bought me this Succulent from a street fair today. I really want it to thrive

I'll see if if can upload a picture. Not sure what type it is or how to take care of it.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction.

Sincerely,
James.

Hi lakers. Welcome to the forum! I'm not much of a succulent expert but no doubt someone here will have an answer for you. It all starts with that first one and before you know it you'll have a whole greenhouse full.

Hey SneakyCuttlefish,

Thanks for the warm welcome ! You're exactly right. The stall I bought it from had lots of varieties of cactuses/succulents and I had to really resist not buying one of each.

Hi Lakers1222

Welcome to the ACF (Australian Cacti Forum)Smile

I think what you might have here is a Sempervivum, possibly a Sempervivum arachinoideum cultivar or hybrid. Sempervivums (Hens and Chicks) are easy growing plants that multiply easy.

Hope this helps

Hey SuperKabuto869,

Thanks for your contribution. I don't know any thing about the botany, but by looking at images online of Sempervivums online I would say they look pretty similar to my one.

I'm glad you say they are easy to multiply. I can see 2 small bulbs forming on the side of my own one Smile
