Dudleya pachyphytum Family: Crassulaceae. A very rare species known only from Cedros Island in Baja California. This is a mid sized species with thick white leaves. The white color is actually a waxy powder produced by the plant. It comes off very easily if the leaves are touched. Best to touch the leaves as little as possible. Easy to grow. Likes lots of sun. Can take light frost, but protect if temps will be below the upper 20s. Will clump heavily in time.
Dudleyas are very similar to Echeveria but are WINTER GROWERS. That means it should be watered regularly (don't keep it wet though) in the fall through spring but kept dry in the summer (maybe a little water once a month or so). Watering regularly in the summer will lead to rot.
This species is extremely threatened in the wild due to poaching. My plants are seed grown plants originating in cultivation, meaning you can rest assured these are sustainably produced.
You will receive a plant shown in the 4th image. Plants shown in a 4" pot. Plants will develop more white coating as it matures.
