Growth Rate

Echeveria Runyonii is a fast-growing succulent, and it forms rosettes of pale blue-green and silver-grey leaves that often have pink tips. 


The plant mostly grows yellow-colored flowers, and sometimes bright orange too. These can be seen blooming in the late summer and the spring season. 

Watering and Feeding

Water regularly in spring and summer, but reduce frequency during the winters. Use a diluted succulent fertilizer to feed the plant during the summer season.


For the Topsy Turvy plant, a gritty and quick-draining soil mix is ideal. Do not forget to use a container with drainage holes when planting. 


Topsy Turvy grows best in the spring and late summer seasons. The frost tolerance temperatures range from -3.9° C (25° F) to 10° C (50° F). For the hardiness zone, it is 9b to 11b.


The succulent loves the full sun and bright light. Topsy Turvy can also survive in partial shade. Keep it away from direct sunlight during the hottest days of summer.


The plant will produce small offsets around the base of the plant. Pull these up, allow them a few days to dry, and then replant them.

If you are looking to enhance the growth of Topsy Turvy, you can go the extra mile by removing all rotten and dead leaves from the bottom of the plant from time to time.
