About Echeveria Bill Gates sp. (4 inch)

Echeveria Bill Gates sp. has thick leaves that curve inward, forming a shape reminiscent of a heart. The surface of its leaves is adorned with a light layer of farina. The tightly arranged leaves create a lotus-like rosette. Under sufficient sunlight and significant temperature variation, Echeveria Bill Gates sp.'s yellow-green color can transform into a charming pink hue.

How to care for Echeveria Bill Gates sp. (4 inch)

Sun: Adequate sunlight helps Echeveria Bill Gates sp. maintain compact leaf arrangements, full leaf shapes, and rich leaf colors. Ideally, it should receive 5-6 hours of bright, direct sunlight or indirect light daily. However, in summer, it is necessary to avoid intense sunlight to prevent leaf sunburn, requiring transplantation to a shaded area or providing shade.

Temperature: Optimal temperatures ranging from 60-80°F promote healthy growth for Echeveria Bill Gates sp. In temperatures exceeding 85°F during summer, cooling can be achieved by moving the succulent to a shaded or well-ventilated area. During winter, temperatures below 40°F necessitate indoor placement.

Soil/Pot: Echeveria Bill Gates sp. thrives in well-draining soil, such as specialized succulent or cactus mixed with regular soil, perlite, or pumice for enhanced drainage. Adjust the proportion of the gritty mix based on local humidity; higher humidity indicates less evaporation, requiring more grit. Conversely, lower humidity indicates quicker evaporation, necessitating less grit. The choice of pot for Echeveria Bill Gates sp. is crucial, requiring drainage holes and considering materials; ceramic pots offer good breathability, while metals or glass can absorb heat, potentially harming root health.

Watering: Water Echeveria Bill Gates sp. is similar to most succulents, favoring a dry environment. Allow the soil to dry completely after your watering. When watering, thoroughly soak the entire pot to ensure moisture penetrates deep into the soil. Succulents are prone to root rot in cold, humid, or hot summers, necessitating reduced watering frequency under such conditions.

Propagation: Echeveria Bill Gates sp. propagates relatively easily from leaf cuttings:
1. Select a healthy, mature leaf from the Echeveria Bill Gates sp.
2. Use sharp scissors or a knife to cut a leaf from the plant.
3. Place the freshly cut leaf in a well-ventilated, shaded, dry area to callous, typically taking 1-3 days.
4. Position the calloused leaf on dry soil in a bright, indirectly lit area with good airflow.
5. Lightly mist with a spray bottle every 1-2 weeks.
6. Within approximately 2-3 weeks, a small new plant will begin to grow from the leaf.

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.
