Echeveria P.V.N Overview

Echeveria 'Perle von Nürnberg' is a highly popular cultivar, favoured for its attractive rosettes of chunky, pearly pink-grey, fleshy leaves which are slightly curled. The leaf colouration becomes more dramatic with increased sunlight, often turning beautiful purple-pink colours. This plant produces light red, bell-shaped blooms on branched stems above the succulent leaves. Echeveria PVN is considered to be the same plant as Echeveria 'Duchess of Nuremberg' and it is still sometimes sold under this name. Provide your PVN with the most light you can, especially if growing indoors where the light is already reduced. Take care with watering, as with all succulents, overwatering is a sure route to rot.

Generally not harvested.

How to propagate Echeveria P.V.N



Can be propagated from leaves, simply remove cleanly from the mother plant, let callus for a few days until the wound has closed and place on soil or in water and wait for roots to develop. Roots usually grow first to seek out water, followed by new leaves. This may take anywhere from a week to a few months and there is no need to water propagating succulents as they will glean all the nutrition and moisture they require from their mother leaf, which will shrivel up over time. The original leaf may be gently removed once it has dried up and become crispy in texture, only remove if it comes away easily otherwise you risk damaging the baby plant.
