|Echeveria minima, native to Mexico, is a miniature Echeveria with tiny rosettes of very chubby, frosty blue leaves. Leaves are frosty rose at tips and along margins.Clusters profusely to form small mound. Racemes of small orange bell-shaped flowers in late spring. Excellent for windowsill culture or for dish gardens. 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.|
