Hens and Chicks - Green - Sempervivum tectorum 'Kalinda'

Regular price $5.99

A pretty green rosette with reddish tips. This one will grow a bit bigger than our other Hens and Chicks if given plenty of root-room. If you confine the roots, it'll stay smaller.* 

Pot can be divided right away into any size, including singles if you can safely wiggle a rosette away from the main plant with a stem or a root. Just be sure to nurture the babies and let them dry out a bit in between watering sessions. 

Very versatile: Cold hardy and drought-proof.

*You can sometimes trick the plant into thinking it's planted in a tight space by putting a rock or two in the planting hole the depth of the root ball, and plant the Hen & Chick on top of the rocks. By making the plant think it's in tight spot, it'll adjust by growing slower and smaller. This theory is what the Bonsai hobby is based upon.
