20/02/2019 - Succulent Update - I need to get updated pics for lots of my succulents, this seems to be the last one on my phone for now so I’ll be busy tomorrow with the camera 😂. Still waiting for flowers on this one to get an exact ID on it but it’s starting to shape up well now and the pointy tips have gone very red. Looks less washed out than a few weeks ago. Thanks to @KelsiBriana for a couple of ID suggestions, and will hope some flower stalks appear in the next few months 😊
Judging by those tips, it's definitely not apus. Apus has no such points to its leaf tips and more or less resembles pulidonis. It's one of those pulidonis hybrids that isn't included in the ICN due to being too genetically similar to already recognized varieties (ie, pulidonis).
Thanks Kelsi 🙏🏼 - I thought something was a bit off in the nursery as it was the only one labelled in handwritten ink 🤔 - I’ve picked up another one too which looked very nice but no label. I def think that one is at least an Echeveria (I’m learning 😁) - for now then, I’ll remove the Apus tag and change it to generic Echeveria tag and see how it develops into either tippy or chihuahuaensis - am I right I need to see it develop a bit of colour too? @KelsiBriana
No problem! Color characteristics definitely help with identification, but this one won't differ too much from what it looks like now, honestly. Green leaves, red tips basically, lol. The best additional identifying trait will be the eventual flowers. The color of the Tippy/chihuahuaensis flower petals will be similar, but structure and flowerstalk form will be different. Here's the link for Tippy: http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=48&aaID=3&aiID=T&aID=164
