Echeveria Gibbiflora is a stemless grower that is heavily waxed and soft. This variety develops gorgeous ruffled leaves with unusual colors. Absolutely unique and a must for collectors. Echeveria Gibbiflora is a drought tolerant succulent that can be used in the landscape or in mixed containers in areas with sun to partial shade. Echeverias are Tropical American (Mexico & Central America) plants of the family Crassulaceae, genus Echeveria. They flower on stems above thick, succulent leaves. The most common problem with them is overwatering. They are very drought-resistant, although they do better with regular deep watering after drying out completely. They also do well with a little fertilizer. Never water succulents in the heat of the day. 

 

Echeveria is a large genus of about 100 species of succulents, in the Crassulaceae family. They are native from Mexico to northwestern South America. The genus Echeveria is named after the 18th century Spanish botanist Atanasio Echeverria Codoy. Several of these species are outstanding garden plants. It's a genus of justly popular, beautiful and easily grown succulents, particularly suitable as house plants. Grouping a variety of Echeveria cultivars together is an ideal way to display the diverse leaf shapes and forms. The mature rosettes grow up to 20 cm in diameter and eventually form many offsets.

 

They mostly have fleshy leaves forming rosettes of a wide assortment of attractive, geometric designs in a range of colours from green through grey, blue, purple, pink to almost white, often with markings in contrasting shades. The plant does not require any pruning. Most species lose their lower leaves in winter. Dudleya prefer to be summer dry, which is their dormant time, whereas Echeveria are winter dry with active growth during summer. Given their opposite water needs, it's not wise to put these two succulents together in a garden.

 

Echeverias are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes. The spikes of showy, urn or bell-shaped flowers can be yellow, red or white with some having unusual hues.

 

Hardiness zones 9-11, (-5°C/25°F, 4°C/40°F). Most species grow in the shade and can take some frost. The plant prefers bright direct sunlight. During the growing period, normal room temperature is suitable. The plant is fairly drought tolerant. Allow the soil to dry between waterings. These plants prefer dry soils and need good drainage. Do not allow the water to collect on the rosette. Use a good cactus soil mix. Fertilize once a year by diluting to half the minimum strength recommended on the label of a standard house plant fertilizer.



Sow seed in pots or trays of moist peat/sand mix compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25ºC (68-77ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take approx. 30-120 days.
