Emerald Coast Growers in Pensacola, Fla., is bringing growers a new sempervivum mixed 50 tray that’s priced at $41.50, or $0.83 per cell.
“Sempervivums’ low water requirement makes them an excellent choice for cost-conscious growers and consumers alike,” says Cheri Markowitz, Emerald Coast’s sales manager. “And our mixed tray is a great way for growers to get their feet wet in the product without making a huge investment.”
