Chick Charms® Giant Maroon Mountain Hen and Chicks Care

Hens and Chicks are tough and hardy, and tolerate a wide range of soil textures and fertility levels. The best planting locations have well-draining soil, full sun exposure, and sandy to loamy soil. Provide supplemental watering only during long periods of drought or heat, and mulch the soil with pea gravel or loose arborist chips. Container-grown Hens and Chicks will tolerate some shade as long as they receive at least 4 hours of direct sun each day. 

Pruning and deadheading are not required to keep Hens and Chicks tidy and compact. Chicks (pups or plantlets) grow around the edges of the mother plant and can be removed and transplanted once they reach a couple of inches across. Alternatively, leave the chicks in place to root and fill in open spaces between plants. 

Hens and Chicks do not require extra protection during the winter months. In fact, the cold weather helps to keep the deep maroon coloring vibrant. Container-grown plants may need to be moved if drainage becomes poor in the winter. Plants sitting in water for long periods become susceptible to root rot and should be moved to a dry location. 

Chick Charms® Giant Maroon Mountain Hen and Chicks Spacing

Chick Charms® Hen and Chicks are perfect for growing in containers of all sorts. The mature size of the mother plant is about 10 inches across. Use pots or shallow dishes that have excellent drainage and a diameter of at least 8 inches for single plants. Space plants 10 inches apart when planting in a garden bed or in a large planter.
