Echeveria 'Madiba' is a magnificent slow-growing succulent that forms a stemless, usually solitary or clustering rosettes of rigid triangular leaves with wavy edges & reddish spiny points.
It gets extremely crinkly and wart like growths on the outer edges of its leaves, displaying pink to grey with a touch of orange occurring when exposed to bright sunlight.
Rosettes can grow up to 30cm in diameter with younger plants having slightly straighter margins with the intense waviness & down turning of the leaves occurring as the plant matures.
Flowers are pink-orange outside, orange inside and appear on slender stalk in spring.
This hybrid actually honours the late, great Nelson Mandela, who was also known as 'Madiba' , his Xhosa clan name!
Full sun to filtered shade. Average Water Needs; Water regularly; do not over water.
As with all succulents, the most dangerous situation is too much water- they should never be allowed to sit in water under any circumstances.
These decorative little plants can be grown in interesting containers such as tea cups and even miniature baby shoes. Make sure the container had adequate drainage. If it doesn t, it might be a good idea to pop the plant out of its container and add a layer of gravel to the bottom to reduce the wicking action of the soil above.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
