I planted some hen and chicks plants in an old coffee pot in our garden a couple of years ago. They loved it there and even wintered in that pot. This year I decided to bring them inside but the coffee pot wasn’t quite the look I wanted.
A few months ago I acquired this ironstone gravy boat online. If I remember right it is from around the turn of the century. I bought it to use as a décor or photography piece rather than a serving piece. The finish is really nicely aged without any chips or cracks.
Well, I decided I would try potting the plant in this gravy boat. Hen and chicks usually doesn’t need much room. I started by lining the gravy boat with plastic wrap. I really don’t want to mess up the gravy boat with stains so I hope this works.
I tried my best to move the plants as gently as possible but I don’t think they are very happy right now and you can see that I kept losing leaves. I’m hoping that they will adapt to their new home. I will let you know what the outcome is!
