Topsy Turvy

Scientific Name: Echeveria Runyonii

Genus: Echeveria

Topsy Turvy is a catchy common name for the Echeveria Runyonii succulent. This name comes from the shape of the leaves, and how they appear turned inside out. This is one of my favorite succulents because of its unique shape, however I have personally found this succulent difficult to propagate (however most find it easy to propagate). It’s best propagated from leaves or rooted cuttings, and if you can successfully get the leaves to grow you will not be disappointed! When topsy turvy succulents are small they are absolutely adorable! They are a soft succulent so they cannot handle frost, however they make excellent houseplants and are non-toxic to pets. They need super bright light, i keep mine under a root farm hydro LED plant light and it’s very happy! Share your experiences with the topsy turvy succulent below!


WATER: Little water, should be dry to touch completely before watering. READ MORE
