Echeveria 'Perle von Nürnberg' is a popular hybrid and one of the most beautiful of all Echeverias. It is a succulent with attractive rosettes of fleshy leaves that change the color from blue-green to gorgeous shades of pink, red and purple. The rosettes grow up to 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter. Leaves are rounded, pointed, and with a coating of farina. Flowers are coral pink with yellow interiors and appear in summer on reddish, up to 1 foot (30 cm) long inflorescences.
USDA hardiness zones 9b to 11b: from 25 °F (−3.9 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).
How to Grow and Care
Most common Echeveria species are not complicated succulents to grow, provided you follow a few basic rules. First, be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests, and Echeverias are susceptible to mealy bugs. As with all succulents, careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success.
Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide.
Most Echeverias can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings, although a few are better from seeds or stem cuttings. To propagate a leaf cutting, place the individual leaf in potting soil for succulents and cover the dish until the new plant sprouts.
