How to Grow and Care

Echeverias make ideal potted plants, but will also thrive in the ground. They need soil that drains quickly. This helps prevent moisture from rotting the roots. Many growers will create their own potting mix. However, commercial cactus and succulent potting soil will work fine.

These succulents like full sun. However, try to avoid these 2 things: drastic sunlight changes and summer afternoon full sun. Dramatic changes in lighting can stress plants out. If you are moving your Echeverias outside in the spring, do it gradually. The intense afternoon sun can cause sunburn. During the winter, when your succulents are inside, put them near the brightest window in your house. They will stretch if they do not have enough sunlight.

Echeverias are tender succulents. Many will tolerate several degrees below freezing, but it is not recommended growing them in the ground if they will be subjected to harsh conditions. You can keep them healthy during the cold months by moving them indoors. Then, once the threat of frost has passed, move them back outside in the spring.
