IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We generally ship Orders placed between Monday and Thursday at noon, the following Monday. When possible, we ship on Wednesdays.
We don't want orders to sit over the weekend.

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

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase.
Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when grown.
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 a different pace 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 rubromarginata

Echeveria rubromarginata is a slow growing and unusual species. It has succulent rosettes, up to 10x11 in diameter and tall, it stay usually solitary but it can occasionally offset to form a small clump. Stem: Stout, caudex-like, very short (almost stemless) it can slowly grow up to 5-7 cm tall, and approx. 1 diameter. Leaves: 4-7 long, 2 -3.5 wide, turgid, obovate or widely lanceolate, obtuse and mucronate to acute silvery-grey to pale green (slightly glaucous), with pink to purple-red slightly wavy margin: Flowers: Red, yellow inside. The inflorescence is a 6-12 branched cymose-panicle, up to 1 m tall. Each branch bears about 5 flowers. Pedicel reddish 1-2 mm long, sepals up to 13 ascending, calix up to 14 mm long, approx. 11 mm in diameter, petals red. it can tolerate sun to shade but - generally speaking - the more light a plant gets the better it will display its colours and shape. However, when moving plants from lower light conditions into full sun, be wary of sun scorch, most easily avoided by ensuring plants are well-watered before moving them on a cloudy day. They can tolerate extended dry periods and survive drought without the need for watering, but they will grow stronger if they receive adequate moisture during their growing season, ut never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged (root rot sensitive). Use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage. Slow release fertilizers with a low to moderate nitrogen content are adequate for the spring and summer growing seasons, and additional fertilizer applications would not require until spring. Good air movement is important for minimizing pest and disease risks, and avoiding excessive humidity in cool winter conditions is important to successfully growing Echeveria in the nursery environment. It can tolerate light frosts, but it is best overwintered at 5-10 C. With the cooler autumn temperatures tending to make their foliage colours become more intense than those of the active summer growing season. Aphids like this plant (and all flowering Echeverias). Propagation: Usually by seeds, but If the plant is repotted some of the bottom leaves can be removed, in order to attempt leaf propagation, it is also a common practice to collect the leaves on the flower stem. However this is not one of the easiest species to root, as many such cuttings will dry out without producing a plantlet, but with perseverance it is likely to get a few new plants.
