Care Information
Hens & Chicks are commonly sempervivum, although some of our varieties are echeveria. As most succulents, Hens & Chicks are highly drought tolerant. Can be planted outdoors and work excellent in rock gardens. The "chicks", or off sets can be broken off and planted to produce more "hens". If kept indoors, make sure to keep in an area with full sun and good air circulation.
