hens and chickens


a few weeks ago I got a cute little hens and chicks plant at a sale. I want to bring it inside this fall and treat it as a houseplant. They are pretty hardy and do survive the winter outside but they always look terrible in the spring. What do you all think?

Been doing it for years, Pinkham!


With half decent sunlight, it can easily be done.

I thought it was okay. I've read they aren't very finicky about much.
just reduce watering and give them light is all the info I can find on keeping them inside.

Yup, that's what I do, Pinkham. I continue to water and fertilize as long as they are actively growing but then cut back when they slow down.


Good luck, and let us know how they do for you.
