Echeveria Elegans - Mexican Snowball - Hen n Chick

What ever you call it - it is downright purdy!


When I purchased this plant it was a single plant in a small plastic pot. It resembles the hen n chicks I always had in the States, except for the color. This plants is a silvery blue/green.

I planted it in a standard soil with a little bark fiber for drainage in a cement pot and put it on the pation out where it gets full baking sun all day coupled with the heat emanating up from the cement floor. It loves it here! It has put out quite a few 'chicks', and now look at this beautiful flower spike.

Just had to share!
