I bought one of these for my mother for mother’s day from the local Target store. In a year or two it had made several new plants which she gave to her daughters.

I am trying to find out what kind of plant it is. The main plant is about 10 inches across.

It blooms once a year in the spring through summer. the blooms last a long time and open from the bottom of the stem up.

I am including some photos I have taken of the plant my mother gave me. It is a cutting from the plant I bought her. It reproduces rather easily from cutting.

Echeveria / Pachyveria?
by: Jacki

Hi Meg,
What a fabulous plant – and so healthy!

I’ve never seen the blooms on the Pachyveria (which is a generic cross between Echeveria and Pachyphytum) but the leaves on this look similar to some of the Pachyveria – slightly thinner than most Echeveria.

Regardless, it’s a lovely plant, and their care requirements are the same – and obviously you’re doing everything right – bright light, copious water and drying out in between, and occasional fertilizing.

In my opinion this is ‘Morning Light’ or ‘Morning Star’ the sister hybrids to ‘Afterglow’. The flower stem is the same but it is in the paler palette.
