The broad lime green leaves of Echeveria 'Lime n' Chili' can often appear slightly variegated, thanks to a combination of translucence and frosty farina. The rosettes are nearly perfectly symmetrical, and with ample sun exposure can begin to blush red across the tips – adding a dash of spicy chili to the bright lime leaves! Known for its tendency to prolifically produce offsets, ‘Lime and Chili’ makes an excellent addition to an indoor display or outdoor rock garden, in climates above Zone 10.
Bright light is the key to experiencing the full spectrum of color that ‘Lime n’ Chili’ has to offer, so be sure to locate this plant within a sunny southern or western exposure. Beyond this, shielding against ‘wet feet’ is the most critical component of this variety’s care, so be sure to provide ample airflow, porous soil, and adequate drainage. A routine, such as the ‘soak and dry’ method, that includes thorough watering only when the soil is completely dry, will further protect against rot and other ills.
During the winter months, bring ‘Lime n’ Chili’ indoors when there is a threat of frost – and in the springtime, you will be rewarded with stunning inflorescences of bright tangerine and pink flowers, which are known for attracting hummingbirds!

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!
