Echeveria chihuahuaensis Care Guide
About Echeveria chihuahuaensis
Echeveria chihuahuaensis has one of my favorite color combos – mint green and magenta. Its smooth leaves come to a sharp magenta point. If left untouched, it looks like the texture of fine porcelain.
Unlike most other Echeverias, Echeveria chihuahuaensis looks best in the cooler months. I have no idea why, but in the few years I’ve owned them this has been the case year after year. I’m thinking that the cooler temps and less water brings out her beautiful stress colors.
It tends to bloom in the Spring and Summer so be on the lookout for beautiful pink flowers on long inflorescences then.
Be sure to keep air flowing around your Echeveria chihuahuaensis. The leaves are tightly packed on top of each other and any moisture caught between the leaves will cause it to rot.
