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

O all the planters on the ground go out in the morning to evening sunshine! they are really doing very well.. Just to see  how long I can keep them like this.. the others stay inside but I have to open it up at 10ish or it gets to hot 85F and up.. Hinting for my son to make me a metal structure!! My xmas present!!

I took some pics of my succulent bed, which really looks like something else now, AS NOW it is all grown up like it should have been this summer.. Figures.. anyway.. this will get redone next year for sure.. More succulents and more natural shade.. also inside my temporary tent greenhouse 6x6. I need a 6x10 I think!!  Doing really great at keeping my plants greener longer..

Also the lizard, the daddy one I would think.. My paddle plant that is now looking just awsome!! anyway.. the plastic I cover it with at nite when chilly has helped much! SHARE your pics!!

Hey cindy, dont' do a tent fabric one!! that is what I have and it almost blew away!! 70mph winds is not good for any structure I would say!! I am to take this one down on ice or very windy conditions.. Well daaaa.. But I didtn' have enough warning to take the tent material down, like less than 5 min.. I Like this one, but not for storms of any kind will it survive.

Barb, I was going to say water deep and let dry out in the shade.  When it is getting a new set of leaves is when you don't water.  I seemed to have killed 2 of mine and I'm not sure what it was.  They were getting more sun and seemed to have burned so I watered a little and tried to give them more shade.  I guess my problem is I have a few different ones in one large planter.  All my outdoor succulents are doing well.  Now that the sun is lower in the sky they are getting more shade from my Hong Kong Orchid Tree.  It is going to be 95* again today so the shade is good!  I hope things start to cool down soon!

Well I watered it really good, OK several drops and the lines/wrinkles are leaving. As we lost the shade tree Sat nite from the storm, I need to keep an eye on the west window shade (my bedroom window) and make sure it is closed at 12pm now.  How is everyones succulents doing IF any are inside?? I have some more to bring in but they are potted so not a big deal. the others in the succulent bed will be muchled and covered when it really gets colder..

ah Robin.. I know about back probs!! I have to sit straight or I start hurting. Get on when U can.. WE miss U!! Hugs to U!!

hey candi look at this and let me know if this is from to much sun through the mini blinds.. Seems like it is drying up some. I turkey basted a few drops on it two days ago and today it looks like this, but the sun was on it most of yesterday. I have it now away from that window.. I hope I didnt' burn it and what ever it is doing goes away.. lol.. maybe a few more drops of water for it? puckered means no moisture right??

Comment by Candi Kleis Maldonado on October 15, 2012 at 12:06am

Barb, sorry to hear about the damage you had!  Wow!  Glad to hear all is good now.  I fly home tomorrow so I can see how my succulents and other plants and tree faired while I was gone!

New Planter Has Really Filled Out

"Thanks Joan! Keryn, yes, this is a very large basket planter mounted on a pole. The pole raises the basket up nice and high so you can see it over the plants in the beds."
