    I am no expert on this and have little experience with Semps. However, I usually just repot them and all my other succulents using new soil (cactus mix) once every 1 to 2 years before the growing season. If you are growing them in the ground I can see the problem…

    Here are a couple sites that mention fertilizing Semps:

    http://www.cactuscollection.com/info...pervivums.html

    Good luck. One of mine produced a “chick” during the dead of winter! I can’t wait for the growing season.
