Slow growing Echeveria Lilacina

Echeveria Lilacinas are super slow growing compared to most Echeverias. One thing you need to be careful with these types of Echeverias are the powdery coating. If you press your finger on it, your fingerprint will be there basically forever. It is so annoying. You have to be super careful with these kind of Echeverias. If you do not want them looking kind scarred up, even though that is not what it actually is. It is just the powder coating has been removed from the leaf.

How big can Echeveria Lilacina grow

Like most succulents or most Echeverias, they will start shooting out their flower spikes and start their active growing. So around February, that is when you start with a little bit more water in your watering routine, they just are going to be more actively growing during that time. This plant can actually grow to ten or twelve inches across according to the research. This is absolutely incredible. This plant can grow exactly the same size as it was when you bought it.

How to water Echeveria Lilacina

For watering this plant, try to just water along the edges and try to never get water on the leaves of the plant. If you do, make sure to either use a little paper towel or napkin to blot it up or just tilt the plant over to the side and allow the water droplets to fall off. Any water on this rosette would be really bad, that can tempt rot and different bad things to happen to what is otherwise a fantastically beautiful plant.

As far as sunlight goes outside, these can be kept according to in full Sun. They can also handle part shade, but they do not want any more than just that.They are actually incredibly cold tolerant. They can go all the way down to 15 or 20 degrees Fahrenheit which is below freezing, so that might be slightly different for each plant. Try and grow one of these if you are someone who likes to do succulent arrangements.

This whitish color of Echeveria Lilacina would really contrast beautifully with mostly blues and greens which is what you find in so many of the other succulent plants. It is so beautiful and really a none fussy Echeveria. It is very easy to take care of and always looks lovely as always.
