Inside Hens & Chicks 10 Replies

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

Cynthia, sorry I meant to reply earlier about the pink flowering sedum that I posted a photo of a few pages back, it is called 'kamshaticum variegated'. It grows to about 8" in height.

Oh yeah Bonnie, I pulled out a whole clump that was starting to surround one of my roses. I literally threw it across the garden intending to retrieve it for the compost bin. I went indoors and forgot all about it, a week later it had embedded itself and put down roots exactly where I had thrown it! Didn't have the heart to disturb it again. Wish all plants grew that well don't you!

Mary, your best bet is to change the soil they're in; lots of pebbles and sand. They actually trive in very poor soil.  Then just admire with no fussing~  ;)

Birdie, LOVE your windowsill planter!

Hi Robin~ glad you started this group, yay! There are a lot of us sedum lovers out here to get your info from.  Yes, they're prolific growers, but the great thing is they pull out easily since they don't have a deep root system.  I'm always yanking one or another of them and tossing somewhere else to grow.

They do prefer sun but will tolerate shade.  They won't usually bloom in the shade, tho.

That is cool, keeping summertime with you all year. I received some starts last year from friends here on G-S I rushed to get them potted and then put into the ground in my winter holding area in the garden. I can't wait until spring to see if they survived.

No I don't think so but my daughter wanted something she could have on her desk at work so I planted her a small bowl.  Then it kinda grew from there.  Have about 5 mini gardens in bowls now.  LOL

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.
