Echeveria derenbergii, often known as Captain Hay, is a charming and petite succulent known for its distinctive appearance and ease of care. This Echeveria variety is a favorite among succulent enthusiasts for its elegant rosette form and attractive foliage.
Leaf Color: Captain Hay boasts striking silvery-blue to gray-green leaves, often with a hint of lavender or pink blush at the tips. The leaves have a powdery or slightly chalky texture.
Leaf Shape and Texture: The leaves are plump, fleshy, and cylindrical in shape, with a pointed tip. They are densely packed and form compact rosettes.
Growth Habit: Captain Hay has a low, clumping growth habit. It forms multiple small rosettes that stay close to the ground.
Light: Echeveria derenbergii thrives in bright, indirect sunlight to partial sun. Provide it with ample light to maintain its compact shape and vibrant colors. Protect it from intense, direct sunlight, which can lead to leaf sunburn.
Watering: Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Water sparingly to avoid overwatering, as Echeverias are adapted to arid conditions. Increase watering slightly during the active growing season (spring and summer) and reduce it in the dormant winter months.
Temperature: Captain Hay prefers mild to warm temperatures and should be protected from frost and freezing conditions.
Soil: Use well-draining succulent or cactus soil mix to ensure proper drainage.
Container: When planting in a container, ensure it has good drainage to prevent waterlogged roots.
Propagation: Echeveria derenbergii can be propagated through offsets (pups) that naturally form around the base of the mother plant. These offsets can be carefully separated and replanted in fresh soil.
