Big beautiful mature clumps of sempervivum plants are very attractive, but overcrowding plants does take its toil on the plants. Here are some observations of mine regarding large clumps of plants:

-As the plants get more crowded, they tend to get smaller.

-Instead of reaching their full potential width, sometimes plants will reach upward trying to find more room. This results in deformed, elongated plants.

-In cold areas such as here in Wisconsin, if plants are piled on top of each other, the top ones tend to die off easier during winters.

-Thick clumps of plants prevent water from evaporating quickly and can cause rotting, especially in the spring time and after heavy rains.

-It’s nearly impossible to pull weeds out of a tight clump of plants.
