Echeveria prolifica f. variegata

R150 incl. VAT

Where it grows

The natural form of this species is native to Mexico, but the variegated form is incredibly rare and generally only occurs in cultivation.

Special features

These petite Echeveria sport blue-green leaves interspersed with cream coloured variegation. As can be implied from their name, they are prolific producers of pups, and will form large clusters in time.

Care Guide

Provide these plants with plentiful light. They prefer partial shade or full morning sun, but are somewhat sensitive to high heat. Make sure to provide these plants with at least 40% shade cloth if you keep them in a greenhouse. They should be planted in an organic soil mix that drains readily, as they are sensitive to too much water, especially when they are dormant in winter. They should be watered often during the warmer months.

Growing season

Spring and summer.

Propagation

Leaves and offsets.

Product FAQS

In our experience, the best time to repot a succulent is in the beginning of the growing season.

A chlorophyll deficiency which results in a lack of green pigment.

A plant with thick, fleshy tissue, designed for storing water over long periods of time.

A mutation in the growth point which results in the plant growing sideways rather than upwards.

If it's only one or two bugs, try to remove them by hand. Alternatively, spray with a pesticide or water with a systemic pesticide. We recommend RoseCare3 or RoseCarePlus, as both these are a combination pesticide and fungicide, which means they prevent insect pests and treat fungal infections.

Succulents do like fertiliser. The general rule of thumb is to fertilise in the growing season. Succulents are quite sensitive, so in our experience halving the recommended dose of general plant fertilizers works well. If it is a fertilizer formulated specifically for succulents and cacti, use the full recommended dose.

Succulents like heavy watering in the growing season, but do need to dry out between watering to avoid root rot.

No, because they are made up of mostly water, they are prone to frostbite.

It is best not to do so. This could stress the plant or burn it. Slowly introduce them by giving them a little bit more exposure each day.

It depends on the amount of sun exposure the window receives. Some succulents will be happy, but the majority will not get enough sunlight to maintain the correct shape. Alternatively, if the window receives too much light, the plant will be burned, as the window will act like a magnifying glass.
