With each petite rosette reaching only 1.5 inches across, Echeveria minima is an adorable addition to any succulent collection. The dusty blue leaves, accented with hot pink tips, are packed so closely together that only the top half of each leaf is even visible, and a coating of farina gives the plant an iridescent glow. With a tightly clustered growth habit, as the plant matures and produces offsets you will be rewarded with a dense mat of foliage, from which flower stalks bearing yellow blooms with salmon pink bases will emerge in the late spring.
Like most varieties of the same genus, Echeveria minima requires bright sunlight, in order to prevent its rosettes from etiolating, or stretching, and to encourage the bright pink tips to deepen in tone. Plant this variety in a porous soil mix in a well-draining pot, and water according to the ‘soak and dry’ method. Take care to never water directly into the rosette, to avoid rot, and make sure to gently remove any shriveled older leaves from the underside of the rosettes, to avoid creating a desirable habitat for pests.
Though Echeveria minima can be moved outdoors during the summer months, to increase its sunlight exposure, it is not hardy below Zone 9, and must be brought back indoors during the cooler winter months to protect from frost damage

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!
