some of my hens are growing a stalk in the middle of it. it then breaks. should i trim this before it breaks under the weight? or support it some how? i can't find much to read on hens and chicks - any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks meg.
Whatever blooms on hen and chicks will die off. But usually you have plenty of babies to take their places. Cutting off the bloom stalks won't stop them from dying. After they start dying pluck them out and you can rearrange the babies to you liking.

i have this happening too. first i noticed that some of the bottom most leaves died. i thought it wasn't getting enough light, so i put it on the plant stand and i just noticed all the new growth in the center is upright rather than laying flat against the other petals. the chicks are still very tiny tho. how big do they need to be before rooting them?
the other hen/chicks is definitely getting ready to bloom...very, very upright growth. and the chicks are very large - should be able to transplant them into their own pots.
