Highlights

Echeveria colorata (previously known as E. lindsayana) (Walther): Frosty, mint green rosettes with pink flushing at its tips. This species is native to Jalisco, Mexico and produces few early offsets. After several years of growth it can reach about 8.0" in diameter, at which point it sends out offsets and develops into a massive clump. This is an easy grower and will sprout yellow-orange, bell-shaped flowers on a bloom stalk up to 18.0" tall. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" round plastic pot.

Echeveria need bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form. They will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light.

Like most succulents, they 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.

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. Additionally, Echeveria can be propagated from stem cuttings or mature leaves. Look to our Succulent Cuttings Guide for more information.
