Your Echeveria will grow best with consistent, bright sunny light; it loves direct sunlight. The less light it gets, the slower it will grow. Avoid very low-light situations.
Water when the soil becomes dry, then thoroughly drench until the water drains into the saucer. Empty the saucer if the water level is high so as not to drown the roots. The worst thing you can do to your plant is to over water it; the roots will rot if kept in water. It will only need watering once every 2 weeks.
Echeveria will appreciate you misting its leaves periodically to help to keep the dust on the leaves.
Your Echeveria enjoys average room temperatures of 60-85 degrees. Avoid temperatures below 50 degrees, sudden temperature drops, or cold drafts
For best results, feed your plant every month during the spring and summer with diluted liquid fertilizer. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.
