Introducing the Echeveria 'Topsy Turvy', which is a stunning succulent that belongs to the genus Echeveria. This Echeveria topsy-turvy plant is well-known among succulent lovers for its unique rosette shape, with leaves that curl upwards and twist inwards, giving it a whimsical and "topsy turvy" appearance.

Myron Kimnack, former director of the Huntington Botanical Gardens, named Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy', a popular cultivar originating from a stable monstrose form of the Echeveria runyonii. 


The leaves of your topsy-turvy echeveria are fleshy and spoon-shaped, with a beautiful grey-green color that can sometimes have a hint of pink or purple on the edges.

The leaves also have a powdery coating called farina, which adds to their charm.

The Echeveria topsy turvy produces numerous new rosettes at its base and doesn't grow a tall stem like some cultivars, instead developing into a nice clump.

This topsy-turvy plant is a relatively compact species, with rosettes that can reach about 7.2 inches in diameter.

The Echeveria topsy turvy flowers are usually bell-shaped and can be bright orange, pink, coral, or yellow flowers in late summer or early fall. When the topsy-turvy succulent is mature and conditions are right, you might be lucky enough to see these delightful flowers emerge from the center of the rosette. 

When it comes to Echeveria topsy turvy care, it prefers full sun to partial shade. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much intense sunlight can lead to sunburn and damage the leaves. 

As for watering, it's important to follow the "soak and dry" method.  Allow the soil to completely dry out between occasional watering to prevent overwatering and root rot. Use our specialized succulent potting mix that contains 5 natural substrates and mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your topsy-turvy succulent thrive. 

If growing indoors, your Echeveria topsy turvy thrives in warm conditions. It prefers temperatures between 65-85°F during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night. You can grow your Echeveria topsy turvy outdoors in USDA zones 9–11. It is not cold hardy, so it's best to protect it from frost and freezing temperatures, as prolonged exposure to extreme cold can damage the Echeveria plant.

If you're growing it outdoors, it's important to take precautions during cold weather. You can bring it indoors or provide some protection, such as by covering it or moving it to a sheltered area.

This plant produces offsets readily, which means it will quickly form a dense carpet of frosty green foliage over time. Its cascading growth habit adds a touch of whimsy and beauty to any landscape or container arrangement.

When it comes to humidity, Echeveria 'Topsy Turvy' is adaptable and can tolerate average indoor humidity levels. It doesn't require any specific humidity adjustments, making it a great choice for various environments. 

The Echeveria topsy turvy is a fast-growing topsy turvy succulent that can produce offsets or "pups" that can be separated and propagated to grow new topsy turvy Echeveria runyonii plants. Many Echeverias can be propagated easily through leaf cuttings, with some species being more effective from seeds or stem cuttings.  

Additionally, Topsy Turvy succulents are generally considered non-toxic to humans and pets. So you can enjoy their unique beauty without worrying about any harmful effects.
