Echeveria 'Agavoides Lemaire'

http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=48&aaID=2&aiID=A&aID=1135 Expanded description by Baker as Cotyledon agavoides in Saunders, Refugium Botanicum 1, nr. 25. 1869. Glabrous, not at all caulescent. The leaves fifteen to twenty in a dense rosette, ovate, an inch and a half to two inches long by an inch broad half-way up, narrowed above to a rigid spiny point, the centre of the blade three-eighths of an inch thick, the upper surface slightly concave, the back much rounded, both sides a very pale glaucous-green, and distinctly reticulated with papillae, the old ones faintly tinged with red at the edge. Flowering branch eight to twelve inches long, slender, with only a very few small bract-like leaves. Flowers four to six in a sparse cyme. The bracts linear, very minute. The pedicels half to three-fourths of an inch long. Calyx under one-eighth of an inch deep, the lobes deltoid, equal, ascending. Corolla orange, half to five-eighths of an inch deep, scarcely at all pentagonal. Note : Echeveria agavoides is highly variable in habitat, occurring in at least 8 Mexican states. It is one of the hardiest echeverias, tolerating high summer temperatures as well as some winter frost.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Echeveria can be propagated easily by separating pups, but also by leaf cuttings, and by seed. It needs a warm, sunny position with well drained soil to develop their foliage colour. It is recommended to position plants in an area where they are in part shade. This means that they should be in morning sun, or afternoon sun, or both (but shaded during the harsh midday period). Alternatively, plants may be grown under full filtered sun underneath shade cloth which is usually stocked by your local hardware store. 50% filtration is recommended to avoid sunburn but maintain great colour. You may need to test what works well in your particular climate. Most succulents will be grown in containers and pots and they will need good drainage medium. Add coarse grit such as perlite or pumice to soil and repot every year in late-spring. Don't worry about damaging the roots when re-potting as most Echeveria generally tolerate disturbance well.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Echeveria could flower a number of times through the year. Flowering can use much of the plant’s energy, therefore it’s recommended that flower stalks are removed from sick or weaker plants until they are well established. If your plant is healthy, enjoy it’s beautiful show of blooms. Flowers on short stalks (cymes) arise from compact rosettes of succulent's fleshy, often brightly coloured leaves. Species are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes and indeed a number of times per year.

 

Propagating

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

Pluck a leaf gently from the stem taking care not to damage the leaf. It should have a u-shape if plucked correctly. Leave the leaf for a few days to callous over. Once this has happened, place the leaf on top of your propagation medium of choice with the u-shaped end downward, rest the leaf on a bamboo stick or similar at a 45 degree angle to the propagation medium. Propagation is best done in indirect light, not in direct sunlight. Alternatively, a grow light can be used. Roots should sprout in two to four weeks, followed by new tiny leaves. At this point, depending on the humidity and rainfall in your area, you may mist or lightly water your leaves as the plant grows. Resist the urge to remove the mother leaf once it becomes dried up and shrivelled. It’s best for this process to occur naturally.
