I stopped watering this as often and once the temperature dropped, it started showing off these intense colors! (10/31/2018)

@paperpatterns This is gorgeous. I can’t get mine to grow as thick. Any advice?

@caseythall mine is left outside all day with relatively full sun for around 7 hours, and very recently the weather has cooled down enough to have these colors show up!

This as well as the Perle previously looked so nice and compact before. (07/09/2018)

My maybe lilacina/subsessilis has flowers! I have to be really careful of handle the leaves because the farina rubs off so easily from it. 😫 (06/25/2018)

Please show us the flowers when there are a few fully open, outside and inside please. From this photo I can 💯 tell you that this plant is not Lilacina @Muzz67 - have a look.

Previously labeled as a lola, currently labeled as a lilacina, but a part of me wonders if it's a subsessilis? Although I think I'm more certain it's a lilacina... 🤔 I'm glad the new, untouched farina is growing in so nicely, though! (04/14/2018)

I think it's a Subsessilis blue.

@succulentwiki the mystery continues 😱 this was labeled as a Lola in the nursery which @Yollymac was kind enough to point out was incorrect, do you know the difference between subsesslis and lilacina?

Lilacina leaves are wider. I will show you my picture.

@paperpatterns - there is only one recorded version of Morning Beauty of Subsessillis (no ‘blue’ version). I will tag you in both mine. I do think @succulentwiki is definitely onto something with the Subsessillis suggestion. 😁👌🏻

Lilacina in the ICN with the typical look and flowers for you to compare. http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=48&aaID=2&aiID=L&aID=1432 @Muzz67 @KelsiBriana - would love your opinions also as I just can’t make up my mind on this one.

@paperpatterns I'm not absolutely sure since I only see the picture. But don't worry about that too much. It's not difficult to tell the difference between these two once you have both of them😉. So maybe just hold on a little bit. You sure will find out later on.

@Yollymac @KelsiBriana @succulentwiki thank you guys for your input!! I'll keep an eye on it for a little longer as well as if any flowers come up!

Previously labeled as a Lola, I'm thinking this may end up being a Lilacina after all as per @Yollymac's suggestion. It lost some of its lavender color and looking paler! (02/27/2018)

@paperpatterns - the farina has been rubbed off the outer leaves but the near leaves are growing back with it. Once rubbed off it doesn’t return. It’s purpose is to help keep the plant dry and also to protect it from sunburn. Therein lies your difference in colour. Also, never water an Echeveria over its crown as many are susceptible to rot. If I get water in there I have a pipette that’s I take it out with. I always water at the base.

@yollymac Good to know! We had strong winds about a month ago that actually knocked a few plants over, so a lot of the farina rubbed off 😣 I had a squirt bottle with a narrow tip so I could aim water at the base of the plant, but I've now switched over to bottom watering! The water present in the picture in the leaves is actually from last night's sudden rain 😖 but they're all now in a dry location! A pipette is a good idea!

It got a little roughed up due to the winds but I'm hoping it'll continue with its merry growing~ I love the pastel colors 🤩 (01/29/2018)

This looks more like likacina than Lola. The leaf shape isn’t correct for Lola.

@yollymac Interesting! It was labeled as a Lola when I bought it, but I'll keep an eye on it! A quick google of the two tells me that I... cannot discern the difference 😂 besides leaf shape, is another difference that Lolas look greenish in the center?

I will tag you in mine - I have several here as it’s one of my absolute favs!
