A mesmerizing crested succulent with leaves ranging in color from sky blue to lime green, a dusting of powdery farina lends Echeveria ‘Blue Atoll’ an almost surreal appearance. Care must be taken, however, to avoid marring the farina with the oils from your fingerprints! With an almost lotus-like growth habit, this variety can reach up to 10 inches wide, making it a great centerpiece for any succulent container, arrangement, or rock garden (in temperate climates above Zone 10).
Like most Echeveria, this native of Mexico requires bright sun in order to maintain its beautiful blue coloring and its compact rosette shape. With average water requirements for a succulent, ‘Blue Atoll’ will thrive when watered in accordance with the ‘soak and dry’ method, taking care to water the soil directly so as not to trap moisture between the leaves. Porous soil within a well-draining pot, as well as excellent airflow around the leaves, will help protect the plant from rot or pests, such as mealy bugs.
When provided with the right growing conditions, ‘Blue Atoll’ will send up a tall stalk laden with small, bell-shaped yellow-orange blooms in the spring months. A tendency to offset freely will also ensure plenty of opportunities to propagate as this stunning plant matures.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
