This small Echeveria has been with me for over 2 years. The leaves are light green with red tip and pastel powder.

It's a tough plant, even under harsh sun or in minus 3 temperature. No damages.

And id suggestions?

My own guesses are Echeveria suryeon, or chihuahuaensis.

What do you think?

Thanks! Thank You!

Yes, it looks a little like chihuahuensis or colorata. What do the flowers look like?

Baja, thank you very much!

It has not flowered. Is it normal to be small or should I fertilize it?

I would expect it to get bigger, but not knowing the ID makes it hard to say how big it will get.

Is the soil reasonably fresh? If it's less than 2 years old you don't really need to fertilize. If you choose to fertilize, go low with the dose. If you can tell me the N-P-K of your formula, I can advise how much to use.
