How to Grow and Care

Most of the common Echeveria species are not complicated succulents to grow, provided you follow a few basic rules. First, be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests, and Echeveria are susceptible to mealy bugs. As with all succulents, careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success.

Most Echeveria can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings, although a few are better from seeds or stem cuttings. To propagate a leaf cutting, place the individual leaf in a succulent or cacti mix and cover the dish until the new plant sprouts.

Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide… – See more at: How to Grow and Care for Echeveria

Succulent Overview:

Echeveria are some of the most colorful and spectacular succulent plants. They grow very large with thick succulent leaves in a rosette form. Echeveria succulent plants are originally from Mexico and Central America. Bell shaped flowers on long stems can be yellow, orange, red or pink. Some varieties are more tolerant of wet and cold than others. All echeveria can withstand fairly cold temperatures if the soil they are planted in is dry and there isn't any water on the leaves. Frequent rain and cold on their leaves will cause rot and disease. As the plants grow, remove the dead leaves at the plant's base. Echeveria can look amazing in containers, and mass plantings.

Stunning, healthy, and exceeding all expectation

Posted by Zoe Stromswold on Sep 30th 2020

My Echeveria Parva was slightly delayed in the mail due to variables beyond Young's control. When it arrived at my home in the Midwest, it was packaged well, in incredible shape, and far more impressive than any other succulent I have purchased instore or online from another vendor. I could not have imagined what I beaut I would unwrap. The Copper Spoon and Buddha's Temple I received were fantastic too. I plan on making many more purchases from Youngs.

Far more beautiful than anticipated

I had no idea how many colors this could show off. The specimen they sent was gorgeous and also in bloom! It’s still thriving after a couple months of care. Always look here for new succulents
