Echeveria purpusorum is a small succulent with tight, usually solitary rosettes that occasionally produce few offsets.
Echeveria purpusorum is a petite rosette-shaped succulent. They are native to Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico.
The genus Echeverria is named after Atanasio Echeverria Codoy, an 18th-century botanist. However, the purpusorum species was discovered by Carl and George Purpus. Carl, a botanist and George, the explorer usually worked together.
Like most succulents, Echeveria Purpusorum is short and thick-leaved plant. It is known in some circles as The Rose or Urbinia. Its moniker, the rose, comes from its leaves’ arrangement and pigmentation. A full-grown plant resembled a rose flower. This resemblance is reinforced by its red pigmentation along its leaves’ edges.
Echeveria purpusorum has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Be sure not to let water sit on the leaves, and use a well-draining soil.
