Description:

Wonderful succulent not present in nature, but obtained in nursery from the intersection between E. Topsy Turvy' and E. Black Prince', to obtain a splendid exemplar, very rare because it is the result of a complex union but for this reason strongly coveted by collectors. It is a compact rosette consisting of unusual leaves folded on themselves and upwards, so as to show even the lower surface with a wavy and extremely elegant course. If on the one hand the shape looks a lot like E. 'Topsy Turvy', on the other the very dark colouration of the epidermis, which in the cold periods turns to a real black enriched by reddish shades on the tips, is very similar to E. 'Black Prince'. The overall effect that is obtained is absolutely original: the combination of the movement of the form and the composure of the coloring generates a wonderfully ornamental specimen, without comparison!

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 10 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer and suspend watering completely in autumn and winter.

The best soil is a well draining one, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
