Echeveria 'Blue Sky' is one of our personal favorites here at Succy Crafts. This versatile plant offers stunning colors and contrast that will liven up any arrangement or craft project. This echeveria has thick wide leaves that grow upwards towards the sky. The margins on the leaves in the cold season or if exposed to full sun will become bright pink. The blue and the pink contrast make this succulent very popular among succulent collectors.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Came in great Condition
I was so excited to get my Echeveria Blue Sky, and Succy's didn't let me down. The plant was obviously well cared for...healthy and strong. It was all green when I got it, obviously, but now that I have it planted and outside, the colors are starting to show. I've already placed my second order with Succy's Crafts. :)
