Sister In Law's Mother passed. I would like to give my Brother an Her a plant that will survive generations in replanted pieces or cuttings.
Brothers Sisters and I maybe Cousins have plantings of Hen and Chicks, from Mom, and she got it from her Mother, our Grand Mother, and she from her Mother and she from her Mother. We are quite sure it goes back three generations and believe Grand M told us it went back through her Grand Mother. That means it is somewhere around 200-220 years old.
I never payed much attention to the plant, it was just always there.
i don't know if older petals die or not.It was always green when I noticed it.If the original petals are still living, I can touch them and touch the same petals,that Mom, and Grand Ma and Great Grand Ma and GGreat Grand Ma touched.That is comforting and a sense that they are still with me.Even if the original petals went along time ago the roots and new petals descended from the originals.
Brother and Sister in Law may already have a cutting form Moms plant.I was wondering, you Ladies perhaps know of another plant that lives it seems for eternity if it gets just a little care?

A genuine Bonsai is a treasure. Some are said to endure hundreds of years. Like a tortoise.
