About Echeveria 'Ball of Fat'

Echeveria 'Ball of Fat' is a hybrid succulent cross between Echeveria Minima and Echeveria Elegans Alba. Its thin leaves form a tight, compact rosette ball when it thrives, making it charming and attractive. However, if this succulent doesn't receive enough sun exposure, it is prone to stretch out and grow leggy, which causes the white and pink colors to fade and turn green. Inheriting the characteristics of Echeveria Minima, Echeveria Ball of Fat is known for forming clusters and is often used in DIY succulent bouquets.

How to Care for Echeveria 'Ball of Fat'

Sunlight: Echeveria Ball of Fat enjoys at least six hours of bright sunlight daily throughout the year. Growing them in outdoor areas where they can receive ample sunlight is highly recommended. However, in sweltering summers, it is advisable to provide shade or move them to an airy place to prevent sunburn or plant rot.

Water: Watering Echeveria Ball of Fat when the potting soil completely dries out or when the bottom leaves touch soft. Avoid leaving water in the crown of succulents, especially in sweltering summer. Reduce water amount in cold winter as it goes dormant and stops growing.

Soil & Planter: Add one part of green zeolite, two parts of perlite, five parts of maifanitum stone, and two parts of organic materials to make a perfect potting soil mix to grow Echeveria Ball of Fat. Use a wide planter pot to plant this succulent variety, as its clusters require more space.

Temperature: Echeveria Ball of Fat thrives in warm and dry environments with temperatures ranging from 50-77℉. Move the plant indoors before the temperature drops to 32℉ as this variety is not a cold hardy succulent.

Fertilizer: Replant the succulent with fresh organic soil every spring, which can provide the essential nutrients for them to thrive. Moreover, feeding them with slow-release fertilizer two or three times in spring can also meet the need.

Propagation: Cut off the cluster and do propagation. Before propagation, make sure to disinfect the sharp blade properly. In case the succulent grows too many clusters at the base, you can use a fishing line as another tool to help you complete the job.

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!!!
