Echeveria secunda is a succulent that forms attractive clumps up to 6 inches (15 cm) tall, tight rosettes of short blue-gray leaves and in late spring appear flowers on up to 1 foot (30 cm) tall arching stems. The flowers are fairly large compared to the plant and have red calyces and yellow petals, giving them a bi-colored appearance. A hint of pink on older leaves and leaf margins is evident, primarily in winter.
Full sun to filtered shade. Average Water Needs; Water regularly; do not over water.
As with all succulents, the most dangerous situation is too much water- they should never be allowed to sit in water under any circumstances.
These decorative little plants can be grown in interesting containers such as tea cups and even miniature baby shoes. Make sure the container had adequate drainage. If it doesn t, it might be a good idea to pop the plant out of its container and add a layer of gravel to the bottom to reduce the wicking action of the soil above.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
