Pachyphytum 'machucae' 5.5cm
Pretty succulent not present in nature, but obtained in the nursery from the crossing of different species of Pachyphytum; the specimen shows original characteristics and very appreciated by fans, especially with regard to shapes and changing colors.
Placed in the typical very compact rosette, this plant tends to tuft abundantly up to create wonderful tufts with multiple heads, almost like a peculiar bouquet.
Its leaves are extremely fleshy, almost cylindrical and ending in a slightly more tapered shape, which has given it the common name of "baby finger" because they recall the chubby fingers of a child.
One of the most interesting aspects of P. ˈ Machucae' is its coloration: the epidermis is in fact tinged with pink-lavender notes, which tend to accentuate their purple hue when they are abundantly exposed to sunlight.
The complex results in a pleasantly opaque consistency thanks to the plum that covers the leaf surface and protects it from atmospheric agents, giving it a soft, almost whitish, nuance that makes it even more graceful and elegant.
