The ramblings of an Eternal Student of Life
. . . still studying and learning how to live

Here’s a recent addition to my “kitchen forest”, a “hen and chick” plant, also known as sempervivum. That must be a Latin word of some sort; “semper” as in the Marine Corp motto, and vivum relates to life (I think). Always alive? Well, we shall see. I haven’t had much luck with “succulents” (given their preference for dry deserts over humid forests), but hope springs eternal. Maybe this will be the one that finds itself a place in the little potted houseplant forest near my kitchen windows.

  1. Jim, A beautiful plant. Yes, “always alive”; I’m sure that must be it. I’d say just don’t water it and see what happens. If it droops, give it a few drops of water and see what happens.

    This is a lovely, lovely plant. MCS
