Comments: Hen and Chicks are plants that grow close to the ground with leaves formed around each other in a rosette. The main plant is the "hen" and the "chicks" are the offspring, which start as tiny buds on the side of the main plant and soon sprout their own roots, taking up residence close to the mother plant.
