Echeveria 'Lindsayana'

http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=48&aaID=2&aiID=C&aID=1102 Synonym : Echeveria lindsayana Walther (1972) Series Urbiniae Type : E. Walther, 2 April 1959, from plant cultivated at the University of California Botanical Garden (57.794) (Cas 413924). This plant had been received from J.D. Zabaleta of Guadalajara, who had them from gardens in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Distribution Mexico (Jalisco) First Description by Walther in Echeveria, p. 91, 1972 : Glabrous, stemless. Rosettes simple when young, giving out offsets belatedly. Leaves crowded, about 25 in number, elliptic-oblong, acute or shortly acuminate, to 10 cm long and 3 cm broad, thick, evenly upcurved, nearly flat above, beneath rounded and keeled, with an obscure ridge above near one edge, yellowish-green to whitish, strongly tinged carmine above. Inflorescence to 30 cm tall, 2- branched, peduncle flexuose, to 4 mm thick at base, red, bracts appressed, linear-lanceolate, acuminate, rounded beneath, concave above, branches secund-racemose, pedicels to 14 mm long, strongly turbinate below calyx, red. Flowers : Sepals unequal, very thin, longest 5 mm long, deltoid to ovate-deltoid, acute, appressed, connate at base and decurrent to pedicel, corolla cylindroid, to 12 mm long, 7 mm in diameter near base, 5 mm at mouth, peach-red - coral-red, petals neither keeled nor hollowed, but strongly connate with sepals and pedicels at base, orange inside, carpels 8 mm long, slender, whitish below, above green, nectaries narrow, oblique, to 2 mm wide. Flowering time from April on. Distributed by ISI n° 496 (1966) and ISI n° 89-49 (1989) as Echeveria lindsayana. A big form is known as E. colorata 'Mexican Giant'. Note : Both, Echeveria colorata and E. lindsayana, have been described from plants of unknown origin. E. colorata has later been found in gardens in Tapapa, said to originate from the mountains W of Tapalpa. Regarding E. lindsayana, similar plants have later been found near the summit of Volcán de Tequila, NW of Guadalajara and 60 miles N of Tapalpa. "E. lindsayana differs from E. colorata in having slightly wider and more abruptly acuminate leaves. Grown side by side, they are distinguishable, yet they represent variations commonly found within many speces of Echeveria. Accordingly, they are regarded as synonymous" (Kimnach, A revision of Echveria colorata Walther, CSJUS 52: 55ff, 1980). Meanwhile also non glaucous, green leaves plants have in the Municipio of Atemajac.

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.
