These Roots Run Shallow

When I buy a plant like this I feel like I'm getting a bunch of freebies! They cost $3.33 at Lowes. Sure, I could have split all of those chicks and waited until next year to fill my new glass container BUT:

I bought two plants instead. One is redder than the other but I'm fairly certain they are the same plant. Hens and chicks tend to go red when its cold then bounce back in warmth.

Due to their extremely shallow root systems I chose to display them in last week's thrifted glass dip bowl for a cool suspended effect.

I am really excited about gardening with long term plans!
