Just noticed how different this echevaria looked like today. Having placed it in a very shaded area and got some more frequent watering during this summer, it looked like a different plant, has gone taller and smoother.

Nice plant! I realize this is an old post, but can't help to comment~your plant looks more like Echeveria 'Culibra', not like 'Paul Bunyan'. Do you still have this plant? Nice to see all the changes through the year! Green Grin!
