This is potted with my Echeveria prolifica and I don’t water either plant very often and they are both thriving. It is super pretty with its green and copper spoon-shaped leaves. It’s one of my favorites.

Just recently adopted this Kalanchoe, it was not watered or given proper light for 6+ months. Slowly she’s coming back to life.

This is the first succulent I haven’t immediately killed!! I think the copper coloration paired with the interesting shape is wonderful and provides a nice mixture to your collection!
