  • Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones is a charming succulent that belongs to the Crassulaceae family. Its name, "simulans," is indicative of its resemblance to other Echeveria species, particularly Echeveria Elegans. The reference to "Rayones" points to its origin in the location of Rayones, Mexico.

    While both species exhibit compact rosettes and are native to Mexico, the notable differences lie in the leaf shape and color. Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones has spoon-shaped leaves with a pale blue-green color and a powdery farina coating, while Echeveria elegans features pointed leaves with a bluish-gray or silver-green color. Echeveria elegans is also slightly larger in size.

    Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones typically forms compact rosettes with a diameter of several inches, but the exact size can vary based on factors like growing conditions, age, and care. On average, the rosettes can reach a moderate size of 5-6”, making them suitable for tabletop arrangements and small spaces.

    While Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones typically doesn’t form a dense succulent mat, it can still be grown outdoors and incorporated into rock gardens and succulent gardens in mild climate areas.

    Plants may be shipped bare root.

  • Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones flourishes in bright, indirect sunlight, requiring a minimum of six hours of daily exposure. While it can endure some direct sunlight, shielding it from intense afternoon rays is advisable, particularly in regions with hot and dry summer days.

    Optimal growth for this succulent requires well-draining soil and an infrequent watering schedule. Allow the soil to thoroughly dry between watering sessions, do not overwater as succulents are vulnerable to root rot.

    Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones thrives in a well-draining succulent or cactus mix. Fertilizing isn’t a must for succulents, but you can still give this plant a little growth boost during the growing season in spring-summer with some diluted liquid fertilizer. Stop fertilizing in the dormant period in fall and winter.

    Maintaining temperatures between 65-75°F is ideal for this succulent. Protection from frost is crucial. Avoid high humidity (over 50%) as humid, stagnant air can lead to pests and fungal diseases.

    Echeveria simulans f/ Rayones is pet-friendly and generally regarded as non-toxic to humans and pets. However, you should keep all succulents and houseplants out of the reach of pets and children to prevent potential allergic reactions.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
