Echeveria purpusorum Seeds
Echeveria purpusorum also known as Urbinia purpusii is one of the most handsome and distinct of Echeverias. This natural species is very rare in habitat due to over-collecting of the species. Its unusual foliage closely simulates that of some South African Haworthia of the Liliaceae family. Its attractiveness lies in the beautifully speckled leaves.
It grows in quite hot and dry areas. Rarely offsetting, it has greatly thickened, drought-resisting leaves with nice dark edges and small red spots. It can tolerate sun to shade but - generally speaking - the more light a plant gets the better it will display its colors and shape.
They can tolerate extended dry periods and survive drought without the need for watering, but they will grow stronger if they receive adequate moisture during their growing season. Use a very porous soil, which will allow quick drainage. Good air movement is important for minimizing pest and disease risks. Avoiding excessive humidity in cool winter conditions is important to successfully growing Echeveria in the nursery environment. It can tolerate light frosts, but it is best overwintered at 5-10 °C. Propagation is usually by seeds, but If the plant is repotted some of the bottom leaves can be removed, in order to attempt leaf propagation. However this is not one of the easiest species to root, as many such cuttings will dry out without producing a plantlet.
