Echeveria 'Purple Pearl' Overview

Echeveria 'Purple Pearl' is a popular cultivar, favoured for its attractive purple rosettes of succulent, olive green to rose-lavender coloured thin and fleshy, slightly cupped leaves. These have slightly rounded edges, with each leaf tapering to a point, the leaf edges are coloured a brighter pink-purple shade. The colouration becomes more dramatic with more sunlight. This plant produces coral pink, bell-shaped blooms on branched inflorescences measuring approximately 30cm in height.

Generally not harvested.

How to propagate Echeveria 'Purple Pearl'



Can be propagated from leaves, simply remove cleanly from the mother plant, let callus for a few days until the wound has closed and place on soil or in water and wait for roots to develop. Roots usually grow first to seek out water, followed by new leaves. This may take anywhere from a week to a few months and there is no need to water propagating succulents as they will glean all the nutrition and moisture they require from their mother leaf, which will shrivel up over time. The original leaf may be gently removed once it has dried up and become crispy in texture, only remove if it comes away easily otherwise you risk damaging the baby plant.
