What is the plant
Echeveria are very popular succulents with beautiful leaves in various colors. These plants are extensively hybridized, so in addition to the main species, there are many varieties that have been specially bred for interesting leaf form and color.
The Echeveria genus is part of the Crassulaceae family (stonecrop). The genus is named after the eighteenth century botanist, Anastasio Echeverria y Godoy. There are hundreds of types of Echeverias. This particular type is a bit furry with white hairs or bristly (setosa). You may also hear the plant referred to by its common names Mexican firecracker, Firecracker plant, Firecracker Echeveria and Hen and Chicks. Most Echeveria will remain fairly small (a few inches to a foot across), but some species will grow small shrub-like plants of 2 feet. Members of the Crassulaceae family, their care is similar to sedum and kalanchoe succulents.
