Hens and Chicks in Barnacles!

June 21, 2012
On my May 15, 2012, post I asked, "How Many of You Think Hen and Chicks Will Grow In Barnacles"?

Many of you had confidence that hen and chicks are pretty hardy and could probably grow in almost anything! AND you were right.

Here in the terra cotta pot are New Guinea impatiens and barnacles (purchased at a garage sale) with hen and chicks growing and multiplying.

Just one more way to use the versatile hen and chicks!

  1. What a fun idea! Gotta say I first glanced at it without my glasses and thought...ham and chicken in barnacles...an interesting new dish! lol Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  2. My dear Carlene, I had to increase the screen size so I could see what the heck barnacles were. Well, I knew what they were but, I thought maybe the word meant something else in other parts of the country and we are pretty land locked here at the 5280 so I had never seen one. What a great idea! The hens & chicks look perfect in them!!!

  3. Yours look great. I can't get mine to multiply. Maybe I need a rooster? hehehe

  4. Carlene, I love using the barnacles as a planter. My hens and chicks have grown like crazy.

  5. Well, they look healthy, so the worms must not like them! I've never planted hen and chicks, but I'm storing up ideas for a fairy garden next year and these are on my list.

  6. Carlene, Your barnacles almost look like they're blooming! So cute and your New Guinea impatiens look great too. I had to divide my hens and chicks. There were so many chicks they were getting squished. Hope you have a great weekend,

  7. I love hens and chicks, but this is so cool looking!!!

  8. Amazing! And they look great! The barnacles really show off the chicks against the paler background. I'm blown away at what you see that others can't.
