  • Details
  • A hardy rosette-shaped succulent, Hen and Chicks can be grown outdoors in the garden or indoors in containers. Readily produces new offsets (the "chicks") that grow around the base of the mother plant and form a mat or groundcover if given enough space. To encourage them to spread, you can pull off the smaller plants and replant them with space to start their own cluster. Occasionally plant may produce a light pink flower on a long stem (not necessarily every year).

    Potted in a 4" container.

    Bright light to full sun
    Allow to dry between waterings; about every 2-3 weeks, depending on conditions. After separating chicks, water new transplants more regularly to establish roots.
    Cactus soil with added perlite
    Not toxic to cats and dogs
