1. Echeveria Cubic Frost

Echeveria Cubic Frost is a stunning succulent with silver coated lilac leaves that turn baby pink with lots of sun exposure. The leaves are distinctively upturned, pointy, symmetrical, and fleshy. This species grows quickly and can produce offsets freely, creating attractive clusters of lavender rosettes that can get up to 10 inches in diameter.

In late spring to early summer, it produces lovely coral bell-shaped flowers.

Fast Draining.

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.

3. Cactus Mini Rat's Tail

Aporocactus Flagelliformis - Mini Rat's Tail Cactus, native to Mexico, is a unique succulent. It is distinctive for its long, trailing stems, fine spines that grow to 6 feet in length at maturity. The overall color of the plant is green when young but the stems age to almost beige color.

Sempervivum Calcareum forms dense mats by multiplying via short-stalked offsets.

The rosettes that flower will naturally die afterward, but by this time, the plant has likely produced many offsets that will continue to grow.
