The Echeveria enjoys a warm, sunny spot.
This is an ideal houseplant for those difficult positions even on a windowsill or near a radiator. Echeveria will look beautiful on your patio or decking over summer too. This plant loves the sun!
The more light it gets, the more leaves will develop!
Water your echeveria regularly, but wait until the soil feels dry to the touch before watering again. Now and again add a little fertiliser when watering in spring and summer.
To increase the chances of flowering, stand the plant in a cooler position over the winter and do not water - this should encourage flowering but is not strictly necessary.
If your plant is on the patio, beware of frost - the echeveria is not resistant to frost and must be brought indoors or your echeveria will not survive!
Echeveria originated in the warm, dry regions of Central and South America. It was named after Mexican botanist Atanasio Echeverria y Godoy.
Echeveria is a classified as a succulent (Crassulaceae).
