Pale pinkish purple succulent

(Lemoore CA USA)

This succulent was given to me by a friend. It looks like a flower but isn't as tightly wound up like most succulents I've seen. The base of the leaves have a green tint but for the most part the leaves are a light purpley color.

Hi Brittany, what a gorgeous plant! I'm not 100% sure, but this is most likely either an Echeveria, or a hybrid of Echeveria and Graptopetalum, which there are quite a few of. All this means is that they require very similar growing conditions, such as bright light, warm temperatures, and infrequent but thorough watering.

Although I've never grown this particular one, I'm confident that you'll see some similar varieties and species in many websites such as Dave's Garden Website, and others.

You can see more about Echeveria (click on the links to individual plants in the right column) and Graptopetalum here, and there's more on how to grow Echeveria here.

Best of luck with your lovely plant!

Edited to add: I found this picture of x Graptoveria 'Spirit of 76' which looks pretty much identical. Think we've solved it?
