Similarly, can you walk on hens and chicks?
Named for the baby “chicks” that surround each mother plant or “hen,” this delightful succulent plant comes in a wide variety of forms and colors that you can mix and match to create a living mosaic. … Even though hens-and-chicks can take a lot of abuse, they don’t like too much foot traffic.
Are hens and chicks poisonous to dogs?
Hens and chicks (Sempervivum tectorum) are fun and easy succulents to grow and they are safe plants around dogs, cats and horses. Hens and chicks have only low toxicity in children and adults.
As a rule, succulent plants do not mind crowding whether the plants are grouped in one container or are alone and fully filled out in the container. Transplanting a plant that has filled its container will generally allow the plant to experience a new spurt of growth.
Plant them in sandy soil or add compost, potting soil, gravel or vermiculite to the ground to help with drainage. Hens and Chicks survive in soil where other plants can’t grow. They do great with very little soil, even in gravel and cracks in rock walls, however, accumulated water will kill the plants.
Dig a hole 1–3 in (2.5–7.6 cm) deep to plant the “hen.” Whether planting the hen in a container or in your garden, it needs a bit more space than the chicks. Use a garden spade to dig a hole a few inches deep. Then, use your fingers to loosen the roots and remove extra dirt.
