In early Spring of 2007 I re potted all my Hens & Chicks into strawberry jars. This is how they looked in July.

Repotted them all yesterday and when trying to clean them up for repotting, they separated into what looked like a cazillion babies. There were so many of them that I potted some back in bunches.

Actually after I filled 6 pots I quit. Still had about 45 babies. I took them to the front of a flower bed, dumped them, pressed on them a little and told them to grow. lol usually that is my best planting.

Honestly Lynn, I think I do fuss to much. They probably want to all be left alone.

Faye, upload all the photos you want in a post, then go to the second photo, click your cursor in front of the photo link and backspace so it moves up beside the first photo link. You can do this for three across without making the post to wide for some people with smaller monitor screens.
If you want them centered this is what you do: [c ] photo link [/c ] taking the spaces out.
