Echeveria setosa var. deminuta 'Firecracker Plant'

Size

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.
