An Example of the Perfect Sempervivum Wedding Favor Plugs
I get asked lots about what the Sempervivum plugs will look like when they arrive for a wedding.
These little guys are grown and shipped in 72 cell plug trays (which means there are 72 per tray or flat) and each cell is about 1" across and 1" deep.
They are the perfect size to plop into a little decorative pot, cover with some kind of ornamental stone or gravel (colored beads, to match your wedding colors, maybe?) and offer them as a memento your guests can take home.
Remember to tell them that these are hardy plants, and will only be happy outdoors. They thrive where the winters are cold, if they are covered with snow.
Drought, cold, bright; whatever the climate, these little plants will be happy and healthy.
The only place they won't thrive is if they're kept too wet, and in poorly draining soil, or indoors.
As hardy plants, they require a cold dormant winter period to replenish their energy and grow with renewed vigor in the spring.
These pictures are what I aim for when choosing your Sempervivum wedding favor plugs.
The plants normally overlap a bit, so that they will fit into a 2" decorative pot nicely.
For a quick method of putting your wedding favors together, cut the plastic plug trays into individual cells, put each plant complete with its cell into the little pot, and fill with gravel. This ensures that they don't make a mess - trying to repot them is not recommended.
