You may wonder: How can photos of the same Echeveria cultivar be so different? Before you assume these photos were mislabeled or Photoshopped, consider that intensity of color and symmetry have to do with how much sunlight the plant receives and the direction of the sun’s rays. Echeverias will grow toward greatest sun exposure, which is especially noticeable when bloom stalks lean. Echeverias grown in low light will have elongated leaves (from trying to expose more surface to the sun) and tend to revert to green. Expert Dick Wright advises that two hours of full sun daily is ideal. Age also is important; young plants won’t display the ruffled edges, layered leaves and carruncling of mature ones.
