Echeveria elegans 'Grey Red'
Succulent houseplants are popular plants for window sills, brighten desks and other indoor spaces where you can show them off. Great for weddings! Protect from frost.
Careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success! Possibly a Pachyveria (Pachyphytum x Echeveria) hybrid. Stunning new thick-leaved hybrid; grey leaves w/red tips in sun. Ideal temperatures are between 70-85 degrees during the day and no lower than 40 degrees at night. Do not over-water. A light misting of water with a spray bottle once or twice a week is adequate for most succulents.
Succulents are FAR more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit “under-full” when they need water.
Dry soil is necessary. Succulents should be potted in a fast-draining mixture that’s designed for cacti and succulents. Modifying basic potting mix with approximately half potting mix to half Perlite or Vermiculite.
Perfect as a houseplant.
