Succulent Echeveria Care
Echeveria succulent care requirements vary somewhat from one species to another. Generally speaking, Echeverias require well-drained soil, light, airy potting mix, full sunlight to partial shade, and very little water once mature.
Size & Growth
These pretty plants are easily recognized by their compact rosette succulent growth habit and their plump, attractive leaves, which may be tinged with red or pink and may even seem to glow in the right light. Often full sun!
Flowering and Fragrance
Blooms grow on flower stalks or flower stems in a wide variety of shades that always contrast attractively with the background color of the foliage.
Echeveria Sunlight & Temperature
Echeveria likes bright, indirect sunlight and warm temperatures of the afternoon sun. Many varieties will grow in full sun but may need light shade in scorching summer. Avoid drastic sunlight changes.
It thrives when kept between 70° and 80° degrees Fahrenheit.
In the wintertime, do not let the temperature drop below 40° degrees Fahrenheit. These plants cannot tolerate freezing temps.
How Much Water And Fertilizer Do Echeverias Need?
When watering Echeveria during the growing season, water them thoroughly. Let the potting soil dry out completely before watering again.
Provide them a balanced succulent/cactus food about once a month. In the winter, water lightly and less often. Do not fertilize at all during this resting period.
NOTE: Over fertilizing these succulent plants can cause fertilizer burn.
Many succulent plant varieties tend to develop rotting roots easily. It is best to water from beneath rather than with overhead watering and keep the soil dry.
Always plant Echeveria in pots with drainage holes.
Water carefully, and don’t splash water on the plant’s leaves because this will leave unsightly spotting on the waxy coating.
Soil & Transplanting
Repot young plants annually and mature plants every second year. Repot in spring, using either a special succulent potting mixture or mix your own mix.
Do Echeverias Need Grooming And Pruning?
Echeveria is self-pruning. You will not need to do anything more than removing the occasional dead leaf and blossoms.
