Here’s a selection of lovely Echeveria for your succulent collection. These famed ornamental plants come in many varieties with different colors, texture, and sizes. Still, they all have one thing in common – a beautiful symmetrical rosette leave arrangement. Take a close look at their leaves, and you’ll see that each of them is covered with a translucent powdery coating. But wait until they come into bloom, and their bell-shaped flowers will surely make a statement.
Cactus & Succulent
Cactus and succulents are plants known for their thickened, fleshy parts that function as water storage. These hardy and low maintenance plants need little to no attention.
These are plants that you do not have to water too often and are excellent in various lighting conditions. This makes them perfect for any room in your house.
Beginner plants are exceptionally forgiving and hardy. They are easy to keep alive and mostly low maintenance. These are perfect if you have a less-than-green thumb, or just starting to hone your gardening skills.
Medium - High Light
Plants that require medium to high light will grow best in sunny spots where they can receive filtered or direct sunlight. They make the perfect plants for any well-lit room in your house.
Low water plants only need watering once a week or once every two weeks. Allow the soil to dry completely before the next watering.
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.
Plant Care Tips
These plants thrive in dry regions, and can be grown from leaf, seed, cutting, or pups. Some seed can blow in the wind and get caught on rock faces springing up almost out of nowhere after a rainy season. They have an extensive range of colours from white, green, red, purple, black and more. These colours are usually brightest in high light conditions. If the light levels are low the plant may turn to a more dull version of itself. Recommended soil is our arid cactus and succulent mix.
Most Echeveria are found at high elevations in Mexico. Like most succulents they are found on every continent excluding Antarctica. They are known to survive in harsh conditions that would kill many other plants.
