A guest from Mexico
Echeveria has got thick juicy velvet-like leaves, covered with a waxy layer of protection against the sun. Interestingly, the succulent can also bloom. The bell-shaped flowers arise from short stalks growing out of rosettes. The succulent belongs to the stonecrop family and originally comes from Mexico.
The plant loves the sun. this what gives its leaves the vivid color and the rosettes take on a lovely shape. Limited access to light results in leaves stretching and the whole plant no longer looks that attractive.
Don’t use much water in the winter and the fall. Once a month will be absolutely enough. In the summer, though, you can water them more frequently (once every two weeks). It is important not to splash water on the leaves so that nasty stains won’t appear.
The succulent prefers room temperature. In the winter, a cooler place (with ambient temperature of about 8 degrees C) will be perfect.
The nest medium is the one for cacti and succulents. The thing is that the plant needs very little fertilizer. Twice a year will be just fine.
