Bring home this Succulent from Green Gini Collections.’Perle von Nurnberg’ (Echeveria gibbiflora ‘Metallica’ × E. elegans) (Graessner): An old, classic hybrid that is well-loved for its pearlescent pink and purple tones that can shade to blue-green. Its leaves have an elegant curve to them and a coating of farina gives them a soft sheen. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5″ round, plastic container.
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.
