Description

Echeveria ‘Pink Champagne’ is a cross between Echeveria agavoides ‘Romeo’ and Echeveria laui. It is a slow growing, rosette-forming succulent up to 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter. The leaves are pale blue-green to silvery-grey, with shades of pink, up to 5 inches (12.5 cm) long and up 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide. The showy bright orange flowers rise above the foliage on tall arching inflorescence, usually in late summer or fall.

Hardiness

USDA hardiness zone 9b to 11b: from 25 °F (−3.9 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).

How to Grow and Care

Most of the common Echeveria species are not complicated succulents to grow, provided you follow a few basic rules. First, be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests, and Echeveria are susceptible to mealy bugs. As with all succulents, careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success.

Most Echeveria can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings, although a few are better from seeds or stem cuttings. To propagate a leaf cutting, place the individual leaf in a succulent or cacti mix and cover the dish until the new plant sprouts.

Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide… – See more at: How to Grow and Care for Echeveria
