Ideas and How-to's



Soil: Prefers average to sandy, well drained soil with pH range of 6.6 to 7.5. If the soil is not porous enough, add 3 inches of sand or other gritty material to increase drainage. Top the area with a layer of pebbles or small rocks to act as mulch. Light: Full sun to part shade -- In the heat of summer (or much of the year in the desert), echeverias appreciate protection from harsh sun. Situate them beneath shade cloth or lacy trees, and remove any leaf litter that collects in the crowns. It is best for plants grown indoors, when first taking them outdoors, to expose it to bright sunlight gradually to prevent sun scorch. Water: After establishment, water occasionally during the hot season. Be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Spacing: 6-12 inches Fertilizing: Echeveria rarely need fertilizer. If your plant seems a little pale and lethargic, use a water soluble fertilizer mixed about half strength, and less often than recommended.Winterizing: Not frost tolerant. Echeverias can be easily uprooted and over-wintered in nursery flats if frost is dependable. Give them plenty of bright light; a greenhouse is best, but a bright sun porch will do. Reduce water during winter to encourage dormancy; then, in spring, feed with a dilute liquid fertilizer (half-strength) to promote new growth. Maintenance & Pruning: 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. Divide clumps as needed in early spring.
