IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
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

Echeveria Culebra

Echeveria 'Culebra' (sometimes known as 'Culibra') is a hybrid Echeveria produced by Dick Wright of Fallbrook, California. Forms rosettes to 7" or more in diameter with glaucous pale blue leaves with pink wavy margins. Each leaf has a long, raised "cameo" shape known as a "caruncle" on the upper surface. In time, the "caruncle" causes the leaf to curl downward at the margins, with the resultant creation of a tubular leaf that reminds on of a cobra that is arched to strike. 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. 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.
