Echeveria subrigida

Origin and Habitat: Mexico

Description: Echeveria subrigida is one of the most distinct of all Echeveria species. It produces rosettes of smooth, tapered very bright green leaves margined in red, grows to 60 cm in diameter and as high over time, the leaves have often rippled edges.
Of all the many beautiful Echeverias there are, none can surpass or even compare with the loveliness of Echeveria subrigida and always causes gasps of admiration. The flowers are particularly beautiful because of the grace of the long stems. As flowering progresses the head slowly unfurls.
Booming season: Summer.

Cultivation and Propagation: Echeveria subrigida is a summer-growing and relatively easy plant thought not the easiest of the echeverias. It makes great potted specimens.
Soil: Use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage.
Exposure: It can tolerate sun to shade but - generally speaking - the more light a plant gets the better it will display its colours and shape. However, when moving plants from lower light conditions into full sun, be wary of sun scorch, most easily avoided by ensuring plants are well-watered before moving them on a cloudy day.
Watering: They can tolerate extended dry periods and survive drought without the need for watering, but they will grow stronger if they receive adequate moisture during their growing season, amd never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged (root rot sensitive).
Ventilation: Good air movement is important for minimising pest and disease risks, and avoiding excessive humidity in cool winter conditions is important to successfully growing Echeveria in the nursery environment.
Hardiness: It can tolerate light frosts, but it is best overwintered at 5-10 °C.
With the cooler autumn temperatures tending to make their foliage colours become more intense than those of the active summer growing season.
Maintenance: Remove older dead leaves that build up at the base.
