Product Details

Highlights

One Extra Large Cutting (Echeveria 'Afterglow'): This beautiful, loose rosette is at least 6.0" in diameter. It's a stunning rosette in shades of pink, blue, and purple that grows particularly large and vibrant in bright sun. This hybrid of E. shaviana x E. subrigida can grow up to 1.0' wide and has thin, flexible leaves with a slight wave. Succulent cuttings are not guaranteed to root. Some may arrive with curled edges, but will recover with proper care. Increase your success rate by following our Guide to Planting Cuttings.

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.
