Light
Thrives best in bright light; will love your sunniest windowsill (try South-facing if in doubt!). If its crown starts to be discoloured white, your Echeveria needs more light!

Water
Allow all the soil to dry out between watering; reduce further in winter to let it have a dormancy period. If your Echeveria is in a less bright spot, make sure to water it even less frequently, and make sure no water settles inside the crown of the plant where it can cause rot.

Humidity
Low humidity is perfect for echeveria; a hose down to clean now and again is fine as long as the plant dries and doesn't sit damp.

Soil
It needs a well-draining pot and potting mix; look for specific 'cacti and succulent' soils with plenty of sand and other well-draining materials. Repot every couple of years as the plant grows.

Food
Feed every two months in the growing season, and every three in autumn and winter. Use 'cactus & succulent' labelled feed for best results.

Temperature
Likes temperatures of 15-25°C; on the warmer end in spring-summer and let it be 5°C cooler in its autumn-winter dormancy period.

Pet-safe
Yes, but too much nibbling won't be good for pets, small humans or the plant!

Sprouts Top Tips
Echeveria produce pups- so keep an eye out for miniature versions of your plant growing off the stem or out of the root which you could propagate!

     

     


    All our plants come in a plastic nursery pot as standard.
    Decorative pots are sold separately and can be found here.

    You can use our handy size filter to find the perfect pot!
    For plants the size on the dropdown is the size of the nursery pot the plant comes in. For pots the size on the dropdown is the pots internal diameter. For example, if you select a 12cm pot and a 12cm plant, they should fit perfectly together.
