    "Plants may be evergreen or deciduous. Flowers on short stalks (cymes) arise from compact rosettes of succulent fleshy leaves, themselves often brightly coloured. Species are polycarpic, meaning that they may flower and set seed many times over the course of their lifetimes. Often numerous offsets are produced, and are commonly known as 'Hen and chicks', which can also refer to other genera such as Sempervivum that are significantly different from Echeveria.

    Many Echeveria species are popular as ornamental garden plants. They are drought-resistant, although they do better with regular deep watering and fertilizing. Most will tolerate shade and some frost, although hybrids tend to be less tolerant. Most lose their lower leaves in winter; as a result, after a few years, the plants lose their attractive, compact appearance and need to be re-rooted or propagated. In addition, if not removed, the shed leaves may decay, harboring fungus which can then infect the plant.

    They can be propagated easily by separating offsets, but also by leaf cuttings, and by seed if they are not hybrids."

    Echiveria are a group of succulent plants native to Mexico and South America. Some Echiveria are Polycarpic, meaning they will flower and set seed numerous times over the course of their lifetime. Many species produce multiple offsets giving them the common name of "Hen and Chicks" which can be confusing because "Hen and Chicks" is also a common name for other succulent plants like Sedum and Sempervivum, among others. Echeveria have fleshy, succulent leaves that can be pale green, green-blue to gray-blue, with variations of red tinged colors. Echeveria grow in full sun to shady locations and prefer low humidity. The bell shaped orange to red flowers appear in spring and summer. These plants are drought tolerant but prefer deep watering and a well draining potting medium, if kept too wet rot will occur.
