Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to care for hens and chick plants. Now the materials that you will need are a hen and chick plant and a place to grow it, whether a container or a garden area. Step one, select a location that gets at least a half sun to full sun that's really warm and dry in the wintertime. Next to the house is great, right in gravel or the soil. It doesn't matter. Next step, either divide them out or plant them as a group, make sure the plant itself is exposed but the roots are covered. Next step, cover up the roots at least one or two inches. Hens and chicks are fun to grow, they're succulent so they need very little water, but make sure in the heat of the summer you do give them some water and they'll keep multiplying; and the babies are called chicks, so you can separate them from their mommas and replant them in different areas, and you can enjoy your hens and chicks as part of your family.
