What other plant parents say
The only thing I can tell you for certain at this point is that this succulent does not travel well. I received it along with another succulent which was fine. The Aeonium was a mess. I looked up information on this variety and found (from a source not affiliated with the site from which I purchased) and found that the Aeonium “regularly have SHIPPING ISSUES including bruising, abrasions , and curled leaves.” They say this happens no matter how carefully it is packaged. I found soil in the crevices of the rosettes and have not been able to remove all of it. If you can pick up this plant from the nursery and carefully transport it home, you’ll no doubt live it.
