The dense and compact rosettes of Echeveria 'Dondo' feature broad, green leaves with the slightest hint of gray. The tips of each leaf sport a small, soft spine that sometimes blushes red when exposed to ample sunlight or cooler temperatures, and the fuzzy hairs along the leaf margins separate ‘Dondo’ from other similarly hued Echeveria. With each rosette reaching only 4 inches across, this succulent makes for a great addition to a sunny windowsill, a smaller-scale arrangement, or as an accent in temperate rock gardens.
To maintain its compact rosettes and encourage offsets, 'Dondo' requires bright light with ample airflow. Porous soil, a container with adequate drainage, and thorough watering only when the soil is completely dry round out the basic requirements for this variety. Furthermore, during the winter months this succulent's chubby leaves need to be protected from frost, as they will scar when exposed to freezing temperatures.
As the weather begins to warm, spikes of small, dark yellow to orange flowers will emerge above each rosette, contrasting beautifully with the green of the 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.

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!
