About Echeveria Big Red

Echeveria Big Red is native to Mexico and is a rosette of rounded leaves that crinkle on leaves' margins and curl in the middle. Its most distinctive feature is the beautiful burgundy color that extends from the leaf margin to the leaf surface and back, and the rounded leaves are the main difference from other Echeveria species. Under good care, E. Big Red can reach 12 to 18 inches wide. The leaves will turn from pale burgundy to rosy red in full sun.

How to care for Echeveria Big Red

Sun/Location: Echeveria succulents are very fond of full sunlight because, in enough light, they not only keep their leaves compact, but the color of the leaves will become more vibrant at the same time. However, in low light conditions, you won't be able to see their beautiful burgundy color, and their growth will be slow, so try to grow them outdoors, in a window or balcony with plenty of light.

Soil/Pot: E. Big Red is tolerant of various soils. Still, they do best in a soil mix for cacti and succulents or a potting mix for African violets. You can mix your own or purchase these soils in our store while keeping the soil well-drained. Adding 50%-75% perlite, pumice, or coarse sand is recommended.

Watering: In summer, you can water E. Big Red, which likes sunlight, more often to avoid excessive dryness of the soil. However, remember not to let your succulents sit in water. It is not suitable for its growth. At other times, you only need to water it after the soil is thoroughly dried out. After that, you do not need to provide it with water frequently.

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.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

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!!!
