|My hen had several chicks and was very green. Now some areas down near the bottom are turning brown. What is this due to? Over watering? Under watering? I do not believe it is from under watering? Any answers are appreciated.|

|Without seeing any photos of your hen I can initially guess that it may just be the older leaves on the bottom that are fading away.
The growing part of the hen is the center of the rosettes and as the plant grows new leaves appear as the older ones move further down the rosette. If you don't think that is the case, the change in sun exposure or dry heat may affect the leaves of the rosette.
Has the plant been moved recently or not moved from too much sun exposure. The lower leaves that are turning brown...are they soft, mushy or soft wrinkly? Mushy means rot of the leaves from the lower leaves getting and staying wet and so will turn brown. If soft and wrinkly, that may mean the need for a watering.
And of course if the leaves have been burnt from overexposure to sunlight, then that will have a detrimental affect.

|Just to make sure, are you asking about a Sempervivum?
