Echeveria Minima Summary

Echeveria Minima Physical Characteristics

This plant’s leaves are blue-green with a greyish hue from the farina that covers them to protect them from UV rays from intense sunlight. The fleshy, thick leaves that form these rosettes are densely packed in rosettes leaving scarcely any space between the leaves.

Reddish tips on the leaf’s edges become more colorful with exposure to more light. It blooms in spring by producing long racemes from which bell-shaped pink flowers grow. The raceme grows from the center of the rosette. This makes the small plant appear bigger when flowering.
