Echeveria moranii (Walther): A small, slow-growing rosette of blue-green. The pale blue tone contrasts with the deep red that outlines the leaves and runs down the keel of their outer side.
They send up a tall bloom stalk that tends to bend and grow horizontally. The flowers are bell-shaped with petals that are pink on the outside and yellow on the inside.
- Echeveria need bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form.
- They will not survive a hard frost.
- Need great drainage and infrequent water to prevent rot.
Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
Watch Instructions and guide
Also known as "Mexican Hens & Chicks", Echeveria can produce new offsets or "chicks" around the base of the mother plant. These chicks can be left to form a tidy cluster or removed and transplanted.
