4" Echeveria Runyonii


The Topsy-Turvy Echeveria was first collected, and later named for botanist Robert Runyon in a garden in Mexico, circa 1922. Topsy is a perfect circle of identical leaves radiating outwards from the center; ghostly, aqua powder blue maturing to  translucent, jade green foliage at the bottom. The leaves are thick fingers, rolled under along the leaf edges and with a centerfold that recurves the tips back all topsy-turvy, (not to be confused with willy-nilly.) Also called silver spoons, the mature Topsy flowers the most lovely, fancy shepherd's hooks decorated with fat, pointy, orangey-coral buds that open to fat bells ending in 5-pointy stars glowing bright orange inside. You'll have hummingbirds peeking in your windows at those flowers they love. Getting to about 12" in his lifetime, Topsy Turvy will grow offsets and can be propagated from seeds too.

  • Drought Tolerant
  • Low Maintenance

Quick Care Guide:

    • Water - Low (1):  Needs very little water to survive. Wait until the plant is completely dry then fully soak. Drought tolerant by nature.
    • High - (5):  Plant needs a lot of light; direct is even better. These plants do best when placed on a window sill or next to a bright window. Avoid concentrated, hot light from window which may cause burning (magnifying glass effect).        
    • Difficulty - Low (1):  These plants need barely any attention to thrive. Set it and forget it.
