About Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick'

Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick,' also known as Echeveria agavoides 'Red Edge.' It is an easy-grow echeveria succulent. With enough sun exposure, the edges of leaves dress in sexy scarlet red. Inherited the tough characteristic of Agavoides plants, Echeveria agavoides Lipstick gets famous for its sharp lime-green leaves with distinguished red "lipstick" edges. The leaves can grow up to 3.2 inches tall and 1.6 inches wide. Echeveria agavoides Lipstick tends to grow side babies from the base stem of the mother succulent, which develops a fantastic bunch of succulent clusters. The apparent differences between Echeveria agavoides Lipstick and Echeveria agavoides 'Ebony' are the leaves' color and shape. Lipstick's leaves are thick, mostly lime green, with red edges. And Ebony's purple and black edges would spread into dots to the inner part of the leaves. The shape of Ebony is various thin or thick.

How to care for Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick'

Sun/Location: Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick' can grow indoors and outdoors. If its striking red edges attract you, you'd better provide it with at least 8 hours of sunlight every day. It can grow outside from spring to fall as long as you provide a sunshade in the hot summer. Like other Echeveria succulents, it is not a hardy plant that can survive outdoors in winter; move it indoors before frost and place it by the window.

Soil/Pot: Like all succulents, Echeveria agavoides Lipstick loves a good drainage system to grow. Add gritty rocks, sand rocks, perlite, or vermiculite to standard soil to improve the drainage of potting soil. If you are a succulent newbie, please ensure the succulent planter has at least one hole at the bottom, which can save a lot of time with succulent care.

Watering/Ventilation:  Succulents are drought-tolerated houseplants, the dry environment makes them happier. Check the moisture of potting soil before every watering and only water the soil is entirely bone dry. You can use this moisture tester or wood sticks to help you finish this job. Live succulents easily get melted to rot. Get fans set up to improve the poor ventilation. (Tips: The distance between succulents and fans is at least 3.3 feet.)

Fertilizer: Unlike other houseplants, feeding succulents once every year or every two years is enough. And this job should start in the middle of spring before summer, which is better for succulents' growth. You can add some organic nutrients like tree bark, and rot dry leaves in the soil. Moreover, professional slow-release fertilizer is also recommended.
