pink yellow and green rosettes

there is something wrong with my plant

Drought Smart Plants reply:

From what I can see, this is a perfectly healthy specimen of Aeonium haworthia 'Kiwi' - this change in colouration is a normal reaction to the fluctuations in light levels from winter to summer.

I've had some that are plain old green all winter, but during the summer when the weather is warm and there is a lot longer daylight, they change magically into lovely banana, mango and lime colours.

If you're still worried that there is something wrong with your plant, I'll need more information! Post again on the Ask the Horticulturist page.

Happy Succulent Growing!

Hi Mum,
If you can post some really good close up pictures on a new thread at the Ask the Horticulturist page, and describe what's happening, I'll try and figure out what's wrong. Sorry, I didn't know from your description that there was an issue.

See you over there!
