-How to care for Echeveria Arje-
Soil: Generally, loose and breathable soil with good drainage is preferred, and the content of granular soil can be high, which is more conducive to its growth. By the way, Echeveria Arje prefers living in a small pot; in this way, its stems will be shorter and thicker, and at the same time, it will be easy to color and thrive in winter. Then, it also prefers soil with a pH of around 5.5 to 6. If you use potting soil with a particle ratio of 60-70% to raise brilliance, as long as it is not watered indiscriminately, the possibility of it going wrong is tiny.
Watering: Echeveria Arje likes occasional watering. Like most succulents, it doesn't need much water, but it can't be too dry, and when its leaves start to wrinkle, it needs water. During their growth period, Echeveria plants may require watering every week to ten days with half to one cup of water, based on the size of the plant. In the summer months, they may require more frequent watering. In the winter, water them sparingly, about once a month, just enough to prevent their leaves from wrinkling.
Sun/Temperature: The temperature in spring is warmer, which is a more conducive season for live succulent growth. You can put it outdoors to raise it and let it receive full light daily. It thrives when the temperature is between 70°F and 80°F. However, this small body plate does not have sunscreen, which is obviously not sun-resistant, so we must shade it when the temperature is too high in summer to avoid sunburn. After entering the cold winter, the outdoor temperature is very low, and the light is relatively weak, so it needs to be moved back indoors, and there must be a sufficient light environment.

Fertilizing: It only needs to be fertilized once a year by mixing the fertilizer with water during irrigation. The succulent plant still needs to change the pot every year so that the succulent grows better. When changing pots, succulent old, weak, and dead roots can be pruned, and the soil and pruned wounds need to be disinfected before potting, the best way to disinfect the soil is to expose it to the sun for a while.
