Grower uses 'color calendar' to ensure succulents always look good

Amigo Plant supplies not only 60 varieties from the standard assortment of succulents but also dyed versions such as the single-coloured Echeveria as well as various high-end versions decorated with glitter or beaded garlands. Amigo Plant has been dyeing plants now for more than 15 years. The water-based dyes that are uses in this process are not harmful to the environment or the plants - they simply continue to grow as usual.

Amigo Plant uses a 'colour calendar' that reflects the most frequently chosen colours of each season: warm colours for the autumn, for example, or cheerful pastels for spring. Mixes are also available. One of these is the 'love mix' for Valentine's Day that contains plants in a beautiful combination of shades appropriate for this special day.

The most familiar version is the monochromatic plant, which is available in a wide range of colours. But higher-end items are also produced by adding glitter, beaded garlands, or extra colours to represent, for example, the colours of a national flag. Also popular are succulents spattered with dye for an artistic twist: the 'Splash' effect. Then there's the 'Glowing Star in the Dark' (a plant that looks as if it's providing starlight during the dark winter months) and the 'Paint your Plant': a DIY package for children that lets them create their own little work of art by using the included brush, dye and gift card with space for a personal message in any language to fit any theme.
