White Stonecrop: Sedum Album, Ghost Plant, Widow's Cross

Sedum album

Sedum album, or white stonecrop, is a low-growing succulent that can be grown from seed. The seeds should be sown in a well-draining soil mix and kept moist until germination occurs. Sedum album can be slow to germinate and may take several weeks or even months to sprout. Once the seedlings have emerged, they should be kept in a bright location with good air circulation.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
