    Light Requirements

    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 Requirements

    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.

    Humidity Preference

    Echeveria will appreciate you misting its leaves periodically to help to keep the dust on the leaves.

    Optimum Temperature

    Your Echeveria enjoys average room temperatures of 60-85 degrees. Avoid temperatures below 50 degrees, sudden temperature drops, or cold drafts

    Plant Food

    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.

    Additional Care

    Echeveria requires little to no additional care. Your Echeveria will benefit from being repotted every couple of years.

    Toxicity

    Your Echeveria is considered non-toxic. Too much ingestion may cause a stomach upset and lethargy. Plants are not intended for human or animal consumption; keep out of reach of children and pets.
