I have a large collection of Aeoniums. I leave them in the garden all summer and bring them into my south facing conversatory in September. Immediately they are brought in they start dropping their lower leaves. This continues throughout the winter months with the stems getting longer and longer! Come Spring they perk up and start growing again. I have tried gently cutting out the centres (which makes them bushier) but does anyone know a solution to my problem? Should I water more often? They are quite dry at the moment. Also how can I induce them to flower (which one did a couple of years ago). Please help.
