Echeveria Plant Care
Echeverias are easy-maintained plants. Just follow these instructions and echeveria will do the rest!
- Temperature: Echeverias are mostly non-hardy succulents and they aren’t used to the cold temperature. In warm climates, you can grow it outside, but in cold climate zones you will need to grow echeveria indoors. The ideal temperature for these tender succulents is between 50 and 70°F (10-21°C). You can grow it outside in USDA zones 9 and 10.
Light: Place your echeveria in full-sun position. Many succulents, including echeverias, will stretch out vertically if they don’t have enough light. Light deficiency will not harm your plant, but the plant will look unattractive and unhealthy. Once the plant has stretched out, you can’t revert its compact shape. That’s why it’s recommended to put echeveria near the brightest window in your house, especially during winter when days are short. Just keep your echeveria out of drastic sunlight changes and direct afternoon sun which can cause sunburns on leaves.
Soil and Fertilizer: Like all succulents, echeverias need well-drained soil that dries out quickly. Choose a quality cactus potting mix or create your own mixture of soil and perlite. Since succulents grow in soil without a lot of nutrients, no fertilizers are needed.
