Forest Frost Hens and Chicks - Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Forest Frost'

Sale price $3.99 Regular price $5.99

Also known as Cobweb Houseleek. It's our favorite Hen and Chick with tiny cobweb-like hairs on the top of the rosettes that add an air of fantasy to the plant. Selected specifically for the miniature garden, we focus on the smaller dwarf varieties for our miniature gardening.

Just like the "regular" Hen and Chicks, they are hardy and drought-proof but will still need water in the dry months. 

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.
