This Echeveria hybrid is one of the many popular Dick Wright creations. It has incredible colors that change throughout the year, though primarily it is turquoise with a hint of pink and purple here and there. The leaves are huge, slightly arching, rubbery things that have a caruncular deformity along much of the dorsal surface, but not to the tips or sides.

The ends of the leaves have a nice wave to them and usually have a pink-orange margin. There are a lot of caruncular hybrids. It eventually gets tall and leggy and flowers, at which point it looks a bit less ornamental, and either nees support (or it could break off of just fall over)… but it’s recommended to have it ‘deheaded’ right below the rosette, forcing offsets which can then also be deheaded and planted later on.

Eventually it develops a hefty stem, and at some point, you are supposed to ‘dead-head’ this plant, and replant it as a short-stemmed plant again (usually reroots well supposedly).
