    1. Echeveria Elegans

     Echeveria Elegans is native to Mexico. It forms tight rosettes of fleshy silvery pale green leaves. Echeveria Elegans produces offsets freely to form a lovely carpet, which makes it a wonderful groundcover succulent.

     In winter and spring, it produces bright pink bell-shaped flowers with yellow tips. It is called "Mexican Snowball".

     Full Sun.

     Loam; Sand Well-Drained, pH around 6.0.

     Avoid letting water sit for too long in the rosette to prevent rot and fungal diseases.

     Dead leaves should be removed from the plant as soon as possible to ward off pests.

     Generally non-toxic to humans and animals

    3. Crassula Cotyledonis

     Crassula cotyledonis is a low growing succulent native to South Africa that can reach up to 6 inches (15 cm) tall.

     Its grey green leaves are flat, rounded, paddle-shaped, grown in rosettes and covered with fine short hairs. The leaves have red or purple margins. The whole leaves can also turn vibrant red when stressed in cold temperatures.

     From spring to summer, Crassula cotyledonis produces clusters of small cream-yellow tubular flowers from each stem.

     Full Sun, Sun to Partial Shade, Light Shade.

     Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Reduce watering in the winter.

     Porous and well-drained. Optimal pH is around 6.0 (slightly acidic).

     Average summer temperatures from 65ºF/18ºC to 70ºF/21ºC are ideal. In winter, it can survive temperatures as low as 50ºF/10ºC.

     Feed with a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.

     You can propagate Crassula cotyledonis by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. The easiest way is to propagate from a single leaf: put the leaf in a succulent or cacti mix, then cover until it sprouts.

    4. Echeveria Licorice

     Echeveria Licorice is one of the succulent species belonging to the Crassulaceae family. Native to Central and Northern South America, this dark, glossy echeveria has gorgeous deep purple foliage that contrasts with the plant's bright green stem. Its thick leaves are elegantly interlaced, making it a beautiful rose-shaped succulent. 

     Echeveria Licorice is a slow-growing and drought-tolerant succulent.

     Echeveria Licorice can produce new offsets around the base of the mother plant, and they are very easy to separate and grow. 

    This echeveria prefers bright sunlight to preserve its colors and compact rosette shape. 

     Once the soil has fully dried, rehydrate it by watering deeply enough to allow water to go down the drainage hole. 

     Echeveria Licorice is very sensitive to wet soil, so choosing well-draining soil is recommended. 

     Echeveria rarely needs to be fertilized. If you want to give them some occasional feeding, do this at the beginning of spring by using a slow-release fertilizer or a water-soluble mixed about half strength and used less often than recommended.

     This plant is non-toxic and pet-friendly. 

    5. Tillandsia Juncea

     Tillandsia Juncea, native to American Southern states, Latin America and Antilles, is a drought tolerant and easy to grow air plant. It has long dark grassy-green needle-like leaves and a brown base. Juncea plants sometimes might have a brick red hue as well.

     All of the plants may be shipped bare root.

     Bright indirect sunlight.

     No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.

     Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Tillandsia Juncea will also benefit from a soaking bath every week. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent root.
