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

I know this isnt' my bed but I wanted to make a indoor succulent sea scape.. So I did a 15 aqu.gal .. lol.. Play sand and Lava Rock and different succulents that wont' survive cold temps out side.. More to add but here it is right now. Plants are in pots and not planted so NO rock bed, just Lava rock to hide them.. The last pic is what it looks like now. more shells added in. will change as I add in more plants but not to many! Small tank..

when I move this back 2 feet more to the fence line, most of those rocks along the back, are coming out.. I will leave only a few and I hope it wil look Ok.. I hope I can BEND good to do so!! LOL.. Also I have to move that cluster of hens and chicks as I have another agave I need to place their. well darn.... Cats have been in it some.. Lots of rocks later wil help keep them out I hope.. 

Comment by Barb Z-7b Okla on August 17, 2014 at 4:29pm

I added in more color yesterday, as in mostly just purslane in pink and yellow as that is the only colors they had.. with all the greeness of the Hens & chicks I needed color and that was a great discount plants to get!! Looks nice.. NOT done still! but working on it earily mornings. 

Looking down into it.. I removed the broke pot as it did not look right up against the rocks.. O well.. I should have left it alone!!  I might place it else where later.. 

Looking at it sitting down.. I need to  move the silvia hot lips later on when it gets cold OR keep it for more shade next year, not sure yet.. lol.. 

Almost their but not quite yet.. More pics as I fine tune it some more..

It's looking great!! Hubby's been working 6 days a week so I haven't been in my yard. Unfortunately, I need him to babysit me while I'm out there.

Comment by Barb Z-7b Okla on August 6, 2014 at 6:50pm

I got it 3/4 done today!! Clouds came in for a while so I got after it. I then started the plantings.. Some need to be moved, like the cascade of hens/chicks, but easy as they are not rooted just yet. I am going to move them further back some.. More rocks to place in here and their, but I found bury them after the planting and they look/work out better. Lose ones do not stay, I  will finish most of it early tomorrow morning.. 

Rocks placed inside but many moved as I planted.. Out line stays but moving more towards the fence are later once I get it all cleaned out.. lol.. 

Started planting. Most flowered succulents, rose moss, Purslane are on the right side. StoneCrops are here and their. Middle rock holds the Agave.. I have it mounted some to help elevate it off the rest of the plants..

I am moving this farther back so it will look more coming at U instead of like this. I might even change out the pot.. This area is for the Hens/chicks area mostly.. So that stone crop top left is coming out..

 More later as I get more in I have many more not planted yet that I want in for winter. Fine tune it here and their and I HOPE I have a rock succulent/other bed soon!! 

Comment by Barb Z-7b Okla on July 31, 2014 at 9:06pm

thats a way to do it. I thought to have mine in by now, but NO... I blame the weather and me not feeling up to par. My story and I am staying with it!! Getting old---er is not fun!! but once done, it wil be nice I hope. that rock has a lot of redness in it. Some sand stone too!! Trying to mix it up some. Tall rocks in back are leaving for other places in the bed. Potted Cactus are moving more around to the east side to get out of the sun. I wil post pics when done.. loluck

I put my new plants into terra cotta planters and bury them into my holding area, until I can get them planted where I want them.


Comment by Barb Z-7b Okla on July 31, 2014 at 8:49pm

Sounds like work in progress too!! Chilly where U are at!! We have been in the mid 70's all day!! LOVE IT!! Warming up thou.. I will get on mine next week earily mornings to beat the heat.. Shouldn't take long!! I need to get them in the ground or they start to die from the containers. To tall and hold to much moisture.  one buck succulents?? WOW!! Love clearance prices for sure!! I have enough I think. Got two agave angustiforlia variegata. Need to be 5' apart! OK. that is one reason to make the bed bigger!! Thinking of next spring under the front side trees next year. so maybe move one their. Ah dreams/do's and work in progress. lol..  O I need a kangaroo plant!! None available this year!! Well darn!! 

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on July 31, 2014 at 8:12pm

Nothing, I have to weed my holding area to get to my newest plants first. Which hopefully will get done on Sat. Oh I did get some new hen and chicks on clearance for a buck.
