|Echeveria agavoides 'Red Tip' is a choice cultivar with fleshy, lime green triangular leaves that are margined with bright red and have deep red tips. Forms rosettes to 6" in diameter. In habitat, many Echeverias grow on rocky outcroppings at higher altitudes. Yellowish bell-shaped flowers in late winter and spring. In this habitat, the water drains quickly away from the roots of the plant, never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged. 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 "stretching" of Echeverias ("stretching" occurs when a moderately fast growing plant such as an Echeveria, is grown in dim light or over-fertilized, which causes overly lush growth that contributes to weak, pallid plants). Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.|
