Hens and Chicks Succulents Indoors

June 28, 2018

Many succulents fail when kept as indoor houseplants, due to low light levels.If you have bright east-, south-, or west-facing windows that channel at least several hours of direct sunlight, you will fare better with succulents like hens & chicks (Sempervivum spp.), as well as higher-light plants such as echeverias, indoors.

Sempervivum species, or hens and chicks, are popular container and garden succulents.

But, they will all go downhill if your window isn’t bright enough or if you move them into lower-light conditions. If you don't have bright light indoors, consider adding a grow light to keep your succulents happy.
