Before the fleece went on, took an annual shot of Romeo 👌🏼 he’s the first succulent I ever bought (Feb 2018) #echeveria #echeveriaromeo #echeveriaagavoides #echeveria-agavoides #echeveriaagavoidesromeo #succulent #succulentsunday

Had a repot over last summer, and looks like a flower stem about to emerge too

I have never seen a "Romeo" in solid pink. What on earth are you feeding it?

Echeveria 'Romeo' - looking a bit aged and not as fresh faced as he used to be, but still adore the colours. Noted for a tidy up and repot in spring #succulentsunday #echeveriaagavoides #echeveria-agavoides #echeveriaromeo #echeveriaagavoidesromeo #succulent

He used to be very shiny! But his leaves have gone a bit duller. Perhaps I need to get my duster and polish out 😆 @pelly

Romeo getting a bit of winter green. It’ll go back though, now that the days are getting longer. And another that’s starting to flower - so many first flowers this year already

I’ve never let this one go outside, so I’m surprised how well it’s done on the windowsill for the last two years! @ShelleySnyder @rosiebug @gjones

So many more to add, but I’ll leave it there as fading quickly and need to sleep 💤 - really pleased how much my ‘Romeo’ has progressed this year. Compared to what it looked like 9 months ago it’s grown so much and the colour has really come out of it ❤️ #echeveria #echeveriaagavoidesromeo #echeveriaromeo #echeveria-agavoidesromeo #succulent #echeveria-agavoides

And 19th June 2018 - grown in size, repotted to next pot size up, I'm sure the red has enhanced too - I'm clearly doing something right! Not bad for my first experiences with succulents 😊 #echeveria #echeveria-agavoides #echeveriaagavoidesromeo #succulent

What direction are they facing? I'd like to get some houseplants on my bay windows but they're south-facing so not sure if anything would survive. ☺

Mine are south ish facing windows (maybe South East) - it’s the sunniest window in the house though 😊 @ublaszko

Progress pics for one of my new succulents - Echeveria agavoides 'Romeo'. Purchased on, and this photo taken, 4th Feb 2018. Mine was sold as 'Taurus' but I think I recall from @Yollymac that this name is misapplied and not correct and should be 'Romeo' #echeveria #echeveria-agavoides #echeveriaagavoidesromeo #succulent
