Known for its abundant production of offsets, Echeveria setosa var. deminuta 'Firecracker Plant' features dense, mounded rosettes of especially chubby blue leaves. Coated in white bristles that form tufts at the tips of each leaf, this variety adds a heavy dose of texture to any container arrangement or temperate rock garden, where it will quickly begin to cover the ground in clusters of petite, 2-inch rosettes. Drawing its name from the vibrant sprays of red and yellow blooms that it sends up during the active growing season, ‘Firecracker Plant’ is a must-have for even the most seasoned succulent collector.

To retain its rich coloration and to maintain the compact form of its unique rosettes, be sure to provide ‘Firecracker Plant’ with plenty of bright sunlight. When it comes to watering, the goal is to replicate the drought conditions of its native Mexican habitat – which can be accomplished by watering thoroughly but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry completely in between. Porous soil within a well-draining pot, coupled with ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, will further ensure your success with this unique variety.

Hardy only to Zone 9, be sure to shield this cultivar from freezing temperatures, which could otherwise permanently disfigure 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. 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!
