CHECK DORMANCY TABLE above TO SEE WHAT IS GROWING & WHAT IS DORMANT

Orders placed between Monday and Thursday at noon, will ship
the following Monday.
Orders placed Friday - Sunday
will ship a week from that Monday

If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Echeverias

See Dick Wright and collector hybrids after regular echeverias listed here

Echeverias ~

These lovely plants are moderately fast growers. They like good, bright light up to full sunlight. If your plant begins to show more and more space between the leaves, it is stretching and needs more light to help it keep a compact rosette shape. Keep soil relatively moist, letting them dry out somewhat between waterings. Diluted fertilizer is appreciated every second or third watering. Echeverias range in size from small, hard-leafed varieties (sometimes more than an inch or two across) to large, colorful and wavy-leafed varieties that grow to as much as two feet across. There are hundreds of varieties, some are species collected from the wild; and many are man-made hybrids. These plants are fantastic because of the range of colors in the leaves. For example, there is 'Blue Curls' with its bluish-red wavy leaves,'Black Prince' with its midnight black leaves and 'Pink Frills' with its rosy pink coloring. Not to be forgotten is Echeveria 'Culebra' with its thick caruncles (sometimes called carbuncles) on the leaf surface. According to Wikipedia: Echeveria is a large genus of succulents in the Crassulaceae family, native from Mexico to northwestern South America. The genus is named after the 18th century Mexican botanical artist, Atanasio Echeverría y Godoy. Many of the species produce numerous offsets, and are commonly known as 'Hen and chicks', which can also refer to other genera such as Sempervivum that are significantly different from Echeveria. They are drought resistant but do better with regular deep watering and fertilizing. Most tolerate shade and some frost, although hybrid species tend to be less tolerant. They can be propagated by separating offsets, but may also be propagated by leaf cuttings, and by seed if they are not hybrids. Echeverias are polycarpic: they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes. Removing lower leaves keeps plants cleaner and healthier. If I see spider mites or mealy bugs, I use natural solutions such as neem oil, bug buster and an alcohol and water mix which consists of 1 part alcohol 3 parts water. Echeverias look different at different growth stages. So perhaps if it doesnt look exactly like the photo below, it will as it matures.
