Echeveria Mexican Giant has large, and fleshy leaves that are very thick. They are also pointy and can range from white to pinky/ light purple when the plant is stressed by cold, sun or lack of root space. The white powdery coating that covers the leaves is called farina and protects the plant from harsh sun.The Mexican Giant rosettes are stemless and grow to approximately 30cm height and over 40cm in diameter in good conditions.The plant has a clumping habit and offsets usually appear in mature plants, in Spring. Echeveria Mexican Giant is not exactly generous with its offsets and mostly produces only about 3-4 pups per year. In comparison many other Echeverias can pop out over 10. It is unusual for young Mexican Giants to grow pups. The plant needs to be a couple of years old at least and some 15cms or more in size.
