My mother-in-law (from Marietta) gave us some hen and chicks plant a few years ago. Just before Memorial Day this year, a stalk began to sprout from the center. As of today (July 10) the second photo is what it looks like now. neither my mother-in-law nor we have ever seen this happen. What is it?

    I think it’s blooming. Kinda looks like a nest of eggs. Anyway I came upon this forum regarding the Hen & Chick plant you may find interesting. http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/alpines/msg0515331721440.html?16

    That’s a flower stalk taking shape. Be patient, it will take a while for this to develop.
