Tillandsia and Hens and Chicks

Hens and Chicks

Hens and chicks (on the right) shine in a charming silver cup. These succulents are alpine plants that tolerate poor soil, as long as it drains easily. Give them full sun; they seldom need watering and are happiest in temperatures from 65 to 75 degrees F. The plant on the left is an air plant, or tillandsia.
