Planting and care

plant have long tap roots which need to stretch out so the plants prefer well-dug, loose, well-draining soil; in preparing a bed, dig down 2 feet in depth and about 3 feet across to ensure the soil isnt too compact.

Climate Echeveria and other non-hardy succulents look amazing in patio planters. Echeveria are originally from Mexico and Central America. They arent used to the cold and will die in freezing temperatures. Just because you live where winter is a real winter doesnt mean that you cant enjoy these colorful plants.

You can keep them healthy during the cold months by moving them indoors. Then, once the threat of frost has past, gradually move them back outside in the spring. Other people who want to enjoy these colorful plants, but dont want houseplants, treat Echeveria like annuals and just plant anew each spring.

Caring for Echeveria Elegance

    Feed plants only sparingly; overfertilization can cause stems to break in the fall. You can add diluted fertilizer into the water, though avoid getting the fertilizer near the plants base; it may help to build a moat in a circle around the plant about 18 inches out.

    The most important part of good Echeveria care is watering. The biggest issue with the succulents is overwatering. Provide moderate amounts of water in the hot, dry season. Let the soil dry out completely before you irrigate again. Potted plants should not be left in a wet saucer. Soft rots and root rot issues occur when the plant is too wet.
