Chick Charms® Giant Steel Appeal Hens and Chicks Care
Select a spot in full sun to part shade. Sempervivums are hardy plants that thrive in low-quality soil that is dry and well drained. Less is more when it comes to watering this drought-tolerant plant. Rainfall is often enough to keep this Sempervivum hydrated, but supplemental water may be required if the roots are completely dry.
The hen plant will send out offshoots or chicks that will eventually replace the hen. Leave the hen until the chicks are established, and remove it after the plant declines.
