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)
@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.
@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!
@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?
