Planting & Care for Chick Charms® Giants Glacier Blue Hens and Chicks

Planting
  • Location: Choose a location with well-draining soil and ample sunlight. Giants Glacier Blue Hens and Chicks prefer full sun to partial shade.
  • Soil: Use well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Sandy or rocky soil is ideal for these succulents.
  • Planting Time: Plant in the spring or fall when the weather is mild.
  • Planting Depth: Dig a shallow hole and plant the rosette at ground level. Ensure the roots are spread out and not cramped.
  • Spacing: Space each rosette about 6 to 12 inches apart to allow them room to grow and spread.
Watering
  • Watering Frequency: Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Giants Glacier Blue Hens and Chicks are drought-tolerant.
  • Avoid Overwatering: Overwatering can cause root rot and damage the plant. Adjust watering according to weather conditions.
Fertilizing
  • Fertilizer Type: Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer designed for succulents. Apply during the growing season (spring and summer) at half strength.
  • Application: Follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for appropriate dilution and application.
Mulching
  • Mulch: Apply a thin layer of gravel or pebbles around the base of the plant to retain moisture and prevent weeds. Avoid mulching too close to the center of the rosette.
Pruning and Maintenance
  • Trimming: Remove any dead or damaged leaves from the rosettes as needed to maintain a tidy appearance.
  • Propagation: Giants Glacier Blue Hens and Chicks can be propagated by separating offsets or chicks from the main rosette and replanting them.
 Winter Care
  • Cold Protection: In colder climates, you can cover the plants or move them indoors during winter months to protect them from freezing temperatures.
Pests and Diseases
  • Pests: Keep an eye out for aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
  • Diseases: Proper watering and well-draining soil can help prevent root rot, which is a common issue with succulents. Ensure good air circulation around the plants to prevent fungal problems.
