Native to the deserts of North and Central America, this tough succulent forms a rosette of thick, waxy leaves. They come in many different varieties which all work well in pots or in hot, dry garden beds. They just need full sun and well-drained soil. Echeveria prefer the soil to dry out completely between watering.
Most varieties of succulents need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight.
Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant.
Succulents need good draining soil. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole.
After planting, water in well and allow the soil to dry between waterings. Water when soil is dry and the sun is shining. Succulents don’t like to have wet feet.
Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.
