      Aeonium schwarzkopf, commonly known as Black Rose or Schwarzkopf, is a striking succulent with dark, rosette-shaped leaves. Proper care is essential to ensure its health and vibrant appearance. Here are care instructions for Aeonium schwarzkopf:

    • Sunlight: Aeonium thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Place it in a location where it receives at least four to six hours of sunlight per day. In the UK, it's best to provide some protection from intense midday sun, especially during the summer months.

    • Temperature: Aeonium can tolerate cool temperatures but is not frost-resistant. It's important to protect it from freezing temperatures, as prolonged exposure can damage or kill the plant. If temperatures drop below 5°C (41°F), consider bringing the plant indoors or providing some form of winter protection, such as a greenhouse or conservatory.

    • Watering: Aeonium has moderate water needs. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of the soil feels dry, but ensure the soil is well-drained to prevent waterlogged conditions. During the winter months, reduce watering frequency as the plant enters a period of dormancy.

    • Soil: A well-draining soil mix is crucial for Aeonium. Use a mixture of cactus or succulent potting mix and perlite or pumice to ensure good drainage. Avoid heavy soils that retain moisture, as this can lead to root rot.

    • Fertilizer: Feed your Aeonium with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring to early autumn). Apply the fertilizer every four to six weeks to provide essential nutrients.

    • Pruning: If your Aeonium becomes leggy or elongated, you can prune it back to encourage a more compact shape. Use clean, sharp pruning shears to trim the stems just above a leaf node. You can also remove any dead or damaged leaves as needed.

    • Winter Care: Put your Aeonium in a greenhouse or bring inside when the temperatures drop in winter.
