Description from Exotic Succulent
4″ Pot Echeveria hybrid ‘Perle von Nurnberg’ – Exotic Succlent Plant
Echeveria ‘Perle von Nurnberg’, one of the most beautiful of Echeverias, is a hybrid of Echeveria gibbiflora v. metallica and Echeveria potosina. Rosette to 6″ in diameter of lovely pruinose violet pink with somewhat triangular leaves. Gracefully arching spike of delicate coral flowers during spring months. Excellent for windowsill culture or as color accent in rock garden or dish garden. 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.
