Hens and Chickens Succulents Assorted, 2" pot, (2 Day Shipping Included in Price)

Sempervivum, or Hens & Chicks, are one of the most popular succulents. They are exceptionally tough plants and seem to thrive in almost any environment. There is a very wide variety of sempervivum, all of which can be nicely incorporated into almost any landscape. Sunlight brings out bright colors in Sempervivums. When planted in full shade, many varieties tend to fade to a plain green color. However, during the summer and in the southern United States, afternoon shade can actually help plant colors last longer. Soil: Sandy, excellent drainage.The plant should be potted in sandy soil and requires very little water. These succulent plants are drought resistant since they store water in their leaves, but they still need water to thrive. Varieties included are based on availability. Grower pot width is same inch size listed in product title. Easy care, low maintenance. Plants need to be watered every 2-4 weeks when soil feels dry. Bright, filtered light is best. SUCCULENT CARE. We’re not kidding when we say succulents are foolproof plants, but there are two key things to consider when bringing them home. How much water do succulents need. Not much. A thorough watering every two to four weeks is plenty. Consider factors that affect your home’s humidity, like your local climate and the time of year, when determining a watering schedule for your plant. Succulents will be thirsty in hot summer months but can go several weeks between watering in winter (their dormant season). The best thing to do is check the soil every few weeks. If it’s totally dried out, go ahead and water. If not, hold off on the extra H2O. The worst thing you can do is OVER water these juicy plants. Resist the urge to douse them once a week like your other house plants. How much light do succulents need. Succulents thrive in hot places with plenty of sunshine (read: the desert), so a sunny windowsill is the best place for your indoor terrarium or container garden. Your plant will be happy as long as you can give it bright, filtered light for at least four to six hours daily. If your space is very dimly light and there’s no sunny window in sight, consider choosing an aloe, haworthia or euphorbia species that can thrive in lower light conditions. Wait, what about fertilizer for my succulents? Fertilizing isn’t totally necessary, but it will help your slow-growing succulent get bigger more quickly than watering alone. A general purpose 20-20-20 fertilizer will do the trick. Cut it to one-fourth strength and use with every watering from March through mid-September.
