The Echeveria 'Doris Taylor' is a cross between Echeveria setosa and Echeveria pulvinata. The leaves are pale green with dense white hairs. In winter, as other Echeverias, the bottom leaves shrivel, and depending on your level of humidity, fungus could develop among the hair and the dead leaves. It is then better to remove the dead leaves as needed.

Cultural Practices:
Cut of the main rosette of leggy plant in the spring. The rosette can be replanted, as well as the new offsets that appear.

Blooming Habits:
This Echeveria has orange flowers in the spring.

Fruiting Habits:
