Echeveria - painted
by: Jacki Cammidge, Certified Horticulturist

This is some kind of Echeveria - there are several that get this treatment, through no fault of their own. This is not how they're supposed to look. For some reason, there's a trend where growers have gorgeous succulents, but then dip them in paint. As you can see, this one is growing out of it, and reverting back to its original green.

For more on this genus, this page tells you about many different kinds to look for.
