The Echeveria species are polycarpic, this means that they flower numerous times over the course of their lifetimes. The offsets produced by and Echeveria are generally referred to as ‘hens and chicks’ or as I like to call them ‘pups.’ Butterflies like to use them as host plants, and in their natural habitat provide an important environmental role.
Many varieties are deciduous (their leaves fall off once they have reached maturity). In this case it is very important to constantly check for fallen or dying leaf matter as fungal diseases and pests such as mealy bug love to make their home in dried/dead leaf matter.
Flowering usually occurs for a lot of Echeveria species at the end of summer, early autumn as they are a summer active succulent.
