Echeveria 'Cimette' is a succulent that produces compact rosettes, up to 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter, of chunky, thick, blue-green leaves, tipped in rosy-red when temperatures are cooler. It has short stems, bearing racemes of small, nodding, yellow flowers in winter and spring. This succulent produces offsets at the base of the parent plant.


USDA hardiness zones 10a to 11b: from 30 °F (−1.1 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).

How to Grow and Care

Most of the common Echeveria species are not complicated succulents to grow, provided you follow a few basic rules. First, be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests and Echeverias are susceptible to mealy bugs. As with all succulents, careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success.

Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide

Most Echeverias can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings, although a few are better from seeds or stem cuttings. To propagate a leaf cutting, place the individual leaf in potting soil for succulents and cover the dish until the new plant sprouts. See more at How to Grow and Care for Echeveria.


Echeveria 'Cimette' is an Echeveria pulidonis hybrid, possibly with Echeveria agavoides.
