I bought some hen and chicks yesterday and am wondering if I can put them in a shallow container?  There was no tag so I am not sure how much sun they need either.  Any hints/suggestions are welcome.

We potted one that someone gave us in a relatively small clay pot and it did well.  We had it in the house all winter and this year we'll plant it outside somewhere.

Be careful not to overwater.  I seem to drown/rot mine every time I try.

Hen and Chicks are easy to grow. They have babies often. I often use them along the outer border of my perennial gardens. They do well planted with a bit of dirt in an old work boot too. Cut the toe open and put some little ones there as well. They love sun or shade. I have mine in both places. Have fun with them.  snuggle
