Echeveria agavoides Lipstick

Post Number:#1  Postby Spination » Fri May 22, 2015 10:49 am

This cultivar of Echeveria agavoides features a red outline on it's outer leaves, which can vary considerably from individual to individual. The below pictured plant is a selection of a particular pup I grew with exceptionally deep markings into the leaves, which was in turn selected from a plant chosen with nice coloration as well.

Cool. I had seen your photos on that other thread and assumed the large one was an 'Ebony', and the smaller ones 'Lipstick' types which are more red than black. Am I wrong on that? Do the red tips get that dark in color?

Well, the first and third photos of this thread show tips that are definitely red. The second photo to me doesn't look very red, but more black. One other thing I've noted is that the 'Lipstick' varieties feature leaves that are more yellowish or at least a pale green, while 'Ebony' accompanies leaves that are notably more green in color. So, yours fits the entire look in my opinion. I would consider yours an actual 'Ebony', based on what I believe about them. I'll add one last thing that seems to be true so far with mine as well... and that is the 'Lipstick' seems to offset regularly, and the 'Ebony' tends to remain solitary, or at the least - stingy when it comes to vegetative reproduction. Of my 'Ebony', not one has manufactured a single pup to date - while none of my 'Lipstick' that achieve a nominal size have failed to start forming a cluster.
