What is this plant?

Please help me identify this plant. I would also appreciate care instructions. The plant is a year old and I hsve transplanted it yesterday to a slightly larger planter (shown here). Bottom leaves are hues of blue, quite beautiful. Some were dried up, I plucked. Plant has grown from center and is much taller than when I got it. Thanks!

Hard to tell from the pic and it looks more green than blue. Just by the shape of the leave, maybe Echeveria 'Black Knight'. Do you grow this indoors year round? Echeveria 'Black Knight' will become a dark purple in full sun, so I'm not sure exactly what it might be. For sure an Echeveria or possibly x Graptoveria.

RE: What is this plant?

Looks like Echeveria agavoides to me. The leaves should not be pointing downward, though. Perhaps because of transplant or not enough light?

RE: What is this plant?

Looks to me that it was grown in insufficient light. Gradually acclimate it to full sun.

That soil should be cut by at least 50% with perlite / pumice - it doesn't provide enough drainage the way it looks now.

I like that pot.

RE: What is this plant?

Rosemarie has it again, folks! And at second look does look like an agavoides
