Echeveria - Irish Mint

Echeveria - Irish Mint


An echeveria cultivar, Irish Mint is the resulting offspring of Echeveria derenbergii and Echeveria runyonii ‘Topsy Turvy.’ The plant can be identified by its bright mint green leaves that have a distinct tubular shape and grow in an upswept pattern. It tends to grow to about 6 inches (15 cm.) in height. Like most echeveria plants, it will readily produce pups that can be separated and started as their own plants. It will sometimes produce showy orange flower. Irish Mint plants, like many echeverias, are desert dwellers and will tolerate drought conditions very well. Their roots are sensitive to rot, and can become waterlogged easily. Because of this, you should only grow Irish Mint plants in extremely porous, well-draining potting media. Their soil should be allowed to dry out to the touch in between waterings, but when it comes, irrigation should be deep and thorough. While these plants can tolerate some shade, they will start to stretch out and become leggy. They do best with bright light, good airflow, infrequent deep waterings, and regular feedings. This will ensure good, compact rosette growth and impressive golden orange blooms.
