Blooming Echeveria


I found this action going on in the tires this morning! They are not quite open as of yet...but quite beautiful none-the-less!

Yes they are beautiful.

Oh, how pretty! I just love the flowers of Echeverias. All my flowers have wilted on my Echeverias and now I'm not sure what to do about the flower spikes. I don't know if I should leave them alone or cut the spikes off the plant?

I've found that the flower spikes don't "do" anything after the flowers die. They just turn brown and crispy. So you can cut them off if you want. The best way to propogate these is by planting the little "chicks" (the rosettes) that will eventually grow out from the base of the plant.

The only time I've seen these bloom is when they are in the garden center. I just quit buying them years ago because they literally melt in the summer!

Cindy...they don't spread naturally? Do you have to cut off the rosettes and plant them, or will they just do it themselves...sort of???

Aiyana- sorry to hear about them melting. I have a problem with many of the succulents that can't take the heat in my tires...they have to go on my front porch...I view them as my little "weaklings", that have to be nursed back to health!!!
