A beauty with semi upright, plump, pointed foliage. A real rarity with plenty of sculptural appeal. Silver-purple, plump leaves with a black to red tip.

Echeveria unguiculata, unguiculata is Latin for small claw, a reflection of the foliage form. The salmon pink to coral flowers rise on matching stems spring to summer but it is the foliage that makes this plant special.

In ideal conditions offsets will form along the stem and from the base of the plant and will soon fill your pot.

SIZE (HxW): 5-8cm x 5-15cm

I SEE THE LIGHT: Bright, indirect light is ideal. In high light the foliage will change. Keep out of the hot afternoon sun lest their leaves be sunburned or roots damaged. They may stretch if they don’t have enough light.

I NEED A DRINK: Low, water well, then allow the soil to almost dry out before watering again. Keeping them on the drier side will result in better colour. If they are bone dry the roots will wither and the foliage may brown and fall – these are cries of help.

I WILL SURVIVE: These plants are so easy, they pretty much look after themselves. In pots ensure you choose a cactus/succulent potting mix for best results as it offers the sharp drainage they need. Choose a pot with drainage holes to ensure they don’t end up sitting in water.

Use a diluted, liquid fertiliser in spring to keep them happy and healthy. They aren’t heavy feeders so will forgive you if you forget.
