08/05/19 - my Echeveria diffractens has gone a stunning grey colour. It’s extremely flat too, and has grown so wide so quickly in the last two months. Hopefully it should start producing some new flower stems soon as we hit mid summer, and flower by the end of the year #echeveria #succulent #echeveria-diffractens #echeveriadiffractens #shatteringecheveria

Very pretty! Sometimes the plainer looking echeverias are actually more impressive than their brightly coloured relations.

Mine is starting to put up stalks. I barely toughen one and some of the bloom stalk shattered

Morning 👋🏼, bit blustery outside today. I need to go out and check the polytunnel, and do some final Christmas shopping via the GC (uh oh...) but this was frantically waving at me for some attention first. Flowering right on time apparently, Nov-Dec 😄 #echeveria #succulent #echeveria-diffractens #echeveriadiffractens

Thanks Keely! The tiles are lovely aren’t they, called Indian Peakcock from Topps. I put them up a couple of years ago all they were such a pain as they were not on a plastic backing like most mosaics, they were all individual stuck to a paper back which you peel away after sticking them to the wall. Took me ages to do one strip! 😳 @Keely

Thanks Sarah, rather pretty isn’t it? Bit of a metallic shimmer to them as well @sieveheadsarah

Thanks Shaz 😁 @shaz831 - alas it doesn’t stay in front of this background for long, just while I water it. Too dark in this room so it has to go back on the windowsill 👍🏼

One for the succulent lovers - Echeveria diffractens. Not had it long, just a couple of weeks, but already a big fan of it 😍 #echeveria #echeveria-diffractens #succulent #tuesdaytreasures #echeveriadiffractens

A couple of leaves fell off when I was repotting it so I’m gonna try propagating it 😉👍🏼

So easy to propagate Richard. Good luck 😁

It's beautiful, Rich! They're called Shattering Echeveria, because their fallen leaves easily propagate all around them at times and form clusters.

Thanks Hayley! I've definitely got the progating bug now, got 3-4 trays on the go of various leaves @hayleyaj

I wondered where it got its name. They certainly fell off quite easily, got five leaves on the go now @KelsiBriana - I should really post some of my leaf props today, got a few new ones which are coming on well

It is Belinda 😄 I've been trying to collect some that have different growth habits to each other. Didn't have one like this so snapped it up at the wisley flower show 👍🏼 @belindah

This particular one is by the door way in my polytunnel, although it will be coming inside soon for winter and for a sunny windowsill. I want to experiment with some of them outdoors in the tunnel longer term, but will raise new ones first to do those tests on @belindah
