Echeverias look different at different growth stages

In habitat, many Echeverias grow on rocky outcroppings at higher altitudes. In this habitat, the water drains quickly away from the roots of the plant, never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged, thereby reducing the possibility of root loss and root disease. For this reason, it is essential in cultivation to use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage. Bright light is required to prevent etiolation (“stretching”) of Echeverias. (Etiolation occurs when a moderately fast growing plant such as an Echeveria, is grown in dim light or is over-fertilized, causing overly lush growth that contributes to weak, pallid plants). Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.  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 ' ' 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 'Culibra' 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. Some Echeverias look different at different growth stages. So perhaps if it doesnt look exactly like the photo below, it will as it matures.

One of the three “Volcanic Echeveria”, this echeveria barbillion is very similar to Etna, but can grow quite a bit larger. Barbillion takes on a green/blune hue and is a heavily carunculated echeveria. Another Dick Wright hybrid, this solitary echeveria can grow up to 18” across. Slowly, with age, it will grow up on a large, bare, stem. The true beauty of this plant, and with many echeveria, is their ability to change color and shape throughout the seasons. There are many similarly carunculated echeverias, but this is one of the larger, and more hardy hybrids available.
