@purpleinopp posted a pic of this exceptional plant, but I can't find a seller.
Does anyone know where to purchase one?

I've been searching online & locally, but so far no one even knows about it.

Best luck! TY for sharing the info, a lot of people seemed very attracted to that plant. I only obtain plants by buying in person @ a store or sometimes through a trade.

A similar plant that should be easier to find might be just as appealing:
Echeveria (Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy')

If Stush's plant doesn't make you drool... then what to say?! LOL!


JoAnn's lovely rosette is a great example of what one would likely find to get started:

There you go again Tiffany.... creating plant lust!
You troublemaker. Whistling
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

@Tofi

you may find it before anyone here in the USA. Smiling

I tracked the grower, Volarth Chi, to this nursery in Taiwan
https://www.kirinfun.me/

I could only Tweet them, and haven't had a reply yet.

Indeed. Plant lust. Green Grin! Big Grin I loved the expression.

In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."
