Echeveria in Medium Croix Cup
[ Height: 7" - 8" | Diameter: 5" - 6" ]
An Echeveria succulent is planted in a speckled ceramic pot. Echeverias come in mostly pastel colors with a pearlescent sheen and can have textured or smooth foliage. Each summer, Echeveria succulents will send up a tall flower stalk if given ample lighting conditions. Place in bright indirect light or a space that receives a few hours of morning sun. Check the soil for dampness once a week. If dry, add about a half of a cup of water, keeping in mind that any excess will build up in the bottom and should be avoided. Water should be applied to soil, not to the plant itself.

Plant Care Guide
As with most succulents, Echeverias grow best in full sun or partial shade. In hot summers, more shade may be necessary.
Allow soil to mostly dry out between waterings. Pour water on soil, not the plant's rosette.
Level of Care
Easy! Just place in bright sunlight and don't overwater.
Echeverias remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild cactus fertilizer about twice a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Warm temperatures are best during the growing season. Plants enjoy cool temperatures down to 55°F in the winter.
Use a well-draining cactus/palm potting mix.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune damaged leaves by pulling from the stem. To propagate, plant stem or leaf cuttings in soil.
Yes! Echeverias pose no risk if consumed by pets.
