About Echeveria 'Aranjuez'

The Echeveria 'Aranjuez' is a succulent plant that belongs to the Crassulacea family and is part of the Echeveria genus. This plant has plump leaves that form a lovely rosette and can come in shades of pink, dark red, or dark purple. As it thrives, its leaves may turn red or even black. When in optimal condition, the Echeveria 'Aranjuez' will have a transparent appearance, and its red leaves and diamond-like patterns will resemble intricate carvings in red crystal.

How to care for Echeveria 'Aranjuez'

Sun: The color of Echeveria 'Aranjuez' is not something that happens overnight. It is a gradual process that needs the right conditions. Adequate exposure to light is crucial for this plant to thrive and develop short, thick leaves, as well as achieve a compact form. Providing ample sunlight during the fall and winter is important to speed up the coloration process. However, during the hot summer, it is important to protect the plant from direct sunlight or limit its exposure to light to prevent sun damage to the leaves.

Temperature: Echeverias are a type of succulent that enjoys temperatures between 65°F and 70°F. Exposure to temperatures under 50°F could potentially cause harm. These plants can grow outside in USDA zones 9 and 10, but for other areas, it is best to keep them as houseplants during the colder months and slowly transition them outdoors once the risk of frost has diminished.

Soil/Watering: Echeveria 'Aranjuez' is a succulent that can endure drought but not waterlogging. So using the Organic Succulent and Cactus Soil Mix is a good option, about 60%-80% of particles, which allows the water to drain as quickly as possible without accumulating in the pot. It is crucial to avoid over-watering and to keep the potting soil slightly moist and dry for the plant's well-being. Inadequate care can lead to problems with the root system, which can cause conditions such as clear leaves and black rotting of the stem. The suggestion is only to provide water to the plant after the soil has become entirely dry.

Propagation: Take a closer look at the plant's thick leaves, which are most likely ideal for leaf propagation. Delicately shake off the fully grown leaves from the lower part of the plant. Then, put them in a dry and well-ventilated location for a few days until the wound is callous. Once healed, lay the leaves flat on the soil and allow the roots to grow.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!

Echeveria 'Aranjuez'

Zoila Ramirez de Roman
E. Aranjuez rots easily.

Unfortunately, the one that was sent to me rotted almost two weeks after receiving it.(see picture ) I tried to collect some leaves in the hope of reproducing it but I don't think I will be successful because the rot reached the apex.

It appeared to be a healthy little plant when I took it out of the shipping box (see picture ), but despite following the care instructions and taking care of it as best as possible (see picture) it did not prosper. I didn't even get to give it its first watering.

Maybe I'll have better luck another time.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your review and the photos. From the pictures, it appears that the succulent arrived looking healthy. Some rare varieties may have specific care requirements, and it's often difficult to determine the exact cause of rot in succulents, as there are many contributing factors. We still look forward to providing you with healthy succulents and a pleasant shopping experience in the future.
