There was root rot on three of my Hens and Chicks…and I didn’t know it and they died…so I have two left. I changed the pot so that these two have better drainage and I’ll water less frequently and maybe less water. RIP 3/5 Aventurine. #RootRot #HensAndChicks #PlantGraveyard

They are winter growers keep in shade and don’t water very often in the summer
🥺 I'm sorry.
They should be able to grow and multiply enough to where in a year or two you may not even be able to tell any died. I had the same thing happen to me. I don’t think the soil I used drained and dried fast enough was the main issue
I have those outside and haven’t watered them for 2-3 years. They live through the winters and be I just let the rain do the watering.
This pot is full of them I water is once’s a month or as needed in your area
