is a beautiful succulent that has interestingly colored acuminate leaves that are a pale grayish brown with pink highlights and have a white powdery dusting. The leaves overlap in solitary, up to 6 inches (15 cm) wide rosettes. The flowers are corral pink in color on the exterior with a yellow interior and appear in summer on 1 foot (30 cm) long reddish-stemmed inflorescences.
Most of the common Echeveria species are not complicated succulents to grow, provided you follow a few basic rules. First, be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests, and Echeveria are susceptible to mealy bugs. As with all succulents, careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success.
