A beautiful Dick Wright hybrid with blushes of pink around the edges of its very frilly grey/green leaves. It is a solitary rosette that most growers claim can grow ‘up to’ 30cm in diameter. My specimen is currently 2 1/2 years of age and sitting at 40cm in diameter, not including the pup that it has produced. My Dick’s Pink Echeveria receives full morning sun until 2pm in summer and this year has produced flower stalk after flower stalk at the end of summer, early Autumn.
Like all Echeverias, Dick’s Pink thrives planted in the ground in well draining soil mix (3 part garden soil, 1/2 mushroom compost, 2 part sand, 1 part perlite. My potted specimen is in Searles succulent and cacti potting mix which I have found to be the best brand of succulent potting mix on the market in Queensland Australia.
