Natives of Africa and Europe, hens and chicks maybe be one of the most popular succulents among indoor gardeners. These plants form parent rosettes of leaves in a variety of colors depending on the type. These are the hens, which are soon surrounded by smaller rosettes, the chicks—a family grouping that can spread up to two feet if provided the room. The chicks can easily be re-rooted in their own pots and will soon start to grow their own broods of hardy and attractive indoor succulents.
Perfect for all kinds of containers, dish gardens, and terrariums. Likes lots of sunlight. A south or west-facing window is ideal. Makes a great gift plant especially for those inexperienced with houseplants.
