Echeveria ‘Etna’ is a spectacular succulent that forms rosettes of frosty violet-blue leaves with warts or “caruncles.” The rosettes grow up to 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter. Flowers are bell-shaped, orange-red, and appear on a long inflorescence.
‘Etna’ is a great addition to rock gardens. The single rosette grows wide, so it’s best not to plant in an arrangement with ground-cover succulents. ‘Etna’ is an Echeveria Gibbiflora hybrid.
Echeveria ‘Etna’ 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 watering.
It grows well in a well-drained succulent mix, with an ideal pH around 6.0 (slightly acidic) or an equal part sharp sand with all-purpose potting mix.
