- Like all succulents, Echeveria need soil that drains quickly.
- This helps prevent moisture from rotting the roots.
- Many growers will create their own special mixture of soil and perlite.
- However, good quality potting soil, or a cactus mix will work fine.
- As a rule of thumb, when you squeeze a handful of moist soil together, it should crumble apart again when released.
Houseplant, Rock Garden and Showy Tree.
