Since I live in the Midwest (think cold and snow), will Hens and Chicks survive indoors in a room with lots of windows?  I usually bring the pot into the garage over the winter and take it back…Continue

Another good site for nice plants is "Simply Succulents"  just google them.  They have some great ideas on there too!

Robin that is a verigated sedum  This is my first attempt at trying to keep them inside during the winter.  Some faired better than others.

Thank you Garden Girl. I will check it out!

Mary, if you are looking for something for a show, check out North Hills Nursery

I ordered a bunch of Semps. from there a number of years ago, and assuming the quality is still the same, they are awesome!  Generous and gorgeous plants.  It is also a great site to learn from.

Thanks, Robin. Don't know what I'll do for the show this year! But, this was the 1st time in this catagory I actually got a ribbon! We don't have any small pots of succulents in yet, but I think I'll check out HD down the road. They usualy have them.

Mary, I think if you want to do a strawberry pot for the Hen and Chicks it needs to be plain terracotta. I know they sell them in cheap plastic strawberry pots, that I what my common Hen's were in before I put them in the rocks, I believe I got it on clearance because they were all dying. But what was left and made it into the ground are doing well and thriving.

Cindy Burdick welcome to the group.

Comment by Mary Adams-zone 6a on March 5, 2012 at 12:52pm

Thanks everybody. Basically, I knew most of this going in, but I wanted a strawberry jar for the cactus show! So silly, I know. Then after every thing came inside, that's when the trouble began! ;-D
