An old friend rewards me today

Post by Ernie » Mon May 03, 2021 6:01 pm

This double headed Echeveria has been with me a longtime and one of the few plants I kept when I sold my last collection :cry: This plant will stay with me until either it or I dies. Not rare not everyones cup of tea but it is attractive.In a 12 inch bowl.
Echeveria lilacina.
Thought I would share it with you.

Me too, up until their very first repotting when I ruin them completely and push to the far end of the shelf to never look at them again.

Lol! I find I can usually do minimal damage by going underneath the leaves and holding the stem but still leaves some annoying marks!

I once had an idea to treat the bottom leaves as a "repotting sacrifice", i.e. pot the plant deeper and let the bottom leaves shrivel completely to keep them more or less in order, but even then I touch them here or there. Same with plants loosing leaves with the gentlest breeze, I just don't want them any more.
