Description

This perennial Echeveria, named “Truffles”, is a cultivar of Mexican native, E. shaviana. A beautiful succulent, it features extraordinary, thick, wavy edged foliage that is ruffled and curled like cabbage leaves. Leaves form frilly rosettes that are an intense, frosty, indigo-cobalt blue. It blooms with showy, pink and yellow flowers, but is mostly grown for its unique foliage colour.

Makes a magnificent colour accent whether indoors or outdoors. Provide plenty of light—a position of full sun to part shade is best. Bright light is necessary to prevent ‘stretching’ (which occurs when fast growing plants are grown in dim light or are over-fertilised, leading to overly lush growth which weakens the plant). Very porous soil is needed for fast drainage and containers should have excellent drainage. Water regularly but only when soil feels dry and do not allow water to sit in rosettes where it will cause rot. Low maintenance beyond removing dead leaves from plant base.

All orders are dispatched every Tuesday via Australia Post and usually arrive between 2-5 business days.

Orders with payment received before Sunday Midnight 11:59 PM  will be processed on Monday and dispatched on Tuesday. Any orders made after this time will miss the batch but will be included in the following Tuesday's dispatch.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.

PACKING

All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.

GENERAL INFOMRATION

Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.
