Echeveria 'Esther' is a hybrid variety featuring petite rosettes known to cluster prolifically, quickly making up for its small size by forming a mat of richly hued foliage. Each of the thin, pointed leaves sports a dusty blue hue, with further depth and complexity thanks to a thick coating of powdery farina. When adequately ‘stressed,’ such as through bright light, cool conditions, or very infrequent watering, the margins of each leaf will display a defined line of bright magenta, making Echeveria ‘Esther’ an eye-catching addition to any succulent collection.
As is the case with most brightly colored Echeveria, the intensity of their sun exposure directly correlates to the intensity of their coloration. While ‘Esther’ can tolerate filtered light, the crisp red margins will likely fade in the absence of more direct sun. Thorough but infrequent watering is the other ticket to success with this variety, ensuring that the soil has a chance to dry thoroughly between drinks. A porous soil mixture in a well-draining pot will further protect the plant against dampness and its associated issues, such as rot or pest infestation – and take care not to allow any moisture to accumulate within the center of the rosettes!
During the cold winter months, be sure to protect ‘Esther’ from temperatures at or below freezing.

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!
