Echeveria 'Cassyz Winter' Cristata

Size: 4"

This crested version of ‘Cassyz Winter’ features the same gradient of olive green, warm pink, and silvery blue leaves – but thanks to a rare mutation, the leaves cluster together in a broad, flatten growth form, instead of as individual rosettes. Both exceptionally rare and exceptionally unique,  'Cassyz Winter' Cristata makes a novel addition to any succulent collection!

While the condensed growth form of this plant makes it slightly more fragile to damage from bumping and jostling, its care requirements are largely identical to those of its more conventional cousin. In order to deepen the greens, pinks, and blues of its leaves, 'Cassyz Winter' Cristata requires bright light, such as from a southern or western facing windowsill. Because of how closely its leaves are clustered together, care must be taken to ensure adequate airflow around the plant, and to avoid pouring water directly over the leaves where it can lead to pests or rot. Porous soil with adequate drainage will help stave off these ills, as will watering thoroughly only once the soil has had a chance to completely dry out.

During the winter months, be sure to protect this rare beauty from frost, which could cause permanent damage to its leaves.

    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.

    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!
