Help me identify this plant! This guy was sold to me as echeveria “blue cante” but I suspect it is subsessilis.

You know, there are that many plants marked incorrect or purposefully named incorrect for a sale that I do not take a plant with me without a quick lookup or verification.

@yollymac I bought it on the Facebook marketplace from TJ Pence. It looked similar enough in the photo to what to what I thought may have been an immature Cante, but I did have doubts. The description said that this guy will get a foot wide, so I was like, hm, that SOUNDS right for a Cante.. It was only $6 so I I figured if it was a Cante, cool that’s a great price, if not, it is still decently priced and pretty anyways lol.

@Yollymac I do like doing trades too, but I’m a stay at home mom who is always super busy and doesn’t drive so sometimes it can be a bit of a hassle to get out and mail something off. I mostly just buy stuff online if it catches my eye with little regard for names. Not many places sell succulents where I am so mostly I have to stick to online shopping.

I love rurally so most my shopping is online as well. Market place have mostly been a disappointment for me with plants not being what people say they are. So that’s why I either research the plant before I buy it or.. buy from reputable growers/sellers so I know what I order is what I get. I am picky though. 😂

@Yollymac this YouTuber I follow @ashleyglassman recently bought some Buddha’s temples with tons of pups. I was totally eyeballing the post she bought it from on the marketplace. They turned out to be some other hybrid and if I recall correctly the seller doubled down and claimed they were true Buddha’s temples. I, too do not have great experiences with the marketplace. I never recommend anyone buy anything from there now. Not all are bad, but too many are.

Well if you want to buy something now and aren’t sure you could always post it here and double check first. We all have each other’s backs. 😁
