About Echeveria

Echeveria Succulent

These guys are super special and moderately fast growers. They dig good, bright light up to full sunlight. If your plant begins to show more and more space between the leaves, it is stretching out and letting you know he needs more light to keep a more compact rosette form (they just look a bit weird otherwise)

Diluted fertilizer is appreciated every second or third watering.

We love these babies because of the range of colours, size from small, hard-leafed varieties (sometimes more than an inch or two across) to large, colourful and wavy-leafed varieties that grow to as much as two feet across. 

Echeveria is a large genus of succulents in the Crassulaceae family, native from Mexico to northwestern South America. The genus is named after the 18th-century Mexican botanical artist, Atanasio Echeverría y Godoy. They are drought tolerant but do their best with regular deep watering and fertilizing.

Most tolerate shade and some frost, although hybrid species tend to be less tolerant. Keep soil relatively moist, letting them dry out somewhat between watering.
