Babies Galore

I believe Image from 2017?

This is a Hen and Chick plant that was my Grandmother’s. She had it for many years in a decorative tire planter.

The plant had outgrown the tire plant so it wasd time for some new pots.

I gave away half and transplanted the other half into several different pots.

Here is the one I transplanted into a strawberry pot in May 2018.

In 13 months it has taken over the strawberry pot and I am considering taking some of the “babies” off and giving them their own pots.

I might just let it keep growing as is and watch it take over the log it sits on.

What’s your opinion?

Thanks for visiting!

  1. It’s gorgeous. I’d be tempted to see how it would look as it spread.


  2. My mom had Hens and Chicks too and they do spread a lot. I have always thought they were a pretty succulent.

  3. Tricky – it looks lovely as it is, but by the looks of things it won’t be long before your pot is swamped! I suppose it depends on how many of them you want or how many you can persuade your friends to have. But a nice problem to have. πŸ™‚

  4. It’s nice to think you still have a plant of your grandmother’s. An heirloom.
    We had those in our house in Normandy. Quite strong plants. (Don’t remember what it’s called in French. Poulets et poussins? I don’t think so.)
