How to care for Echeveria Caroline
Sun/Location: E. Caroline prefers full sun to partial shade to develop its pronounced shape and color. It is appropriate to grow outdoors to absorb the scattered light for at least 6 hours during the growing period in spring and autumn. Remove E. Caroline indoors to shade in the heatwave and supply artificial light to defend against the severe cold in winter.
Soil/Pot: Add a layer of pebbles and charcoal to encourage good drainage on the well-drained pot. E. Caroline hates soggy soil and requires sitting in the porous and ventilated potting soil with gritty materials such as perlite or pumice, evaporating the moisture smoothly to avoid rot roots. Repot in warm spring to upgrade the growth environment, and trim the roots and wrinkled blades at the bottom to help E. Caroline regenerates healthier.
Watering: E. Caroline requires infrequent watering since it is drought tolerant. Abundant water was stored in the plump and lush leaves, reducing watering demand. Stick your finger in the potting soil to test whether it is bone dry. The soak-and-dry method is generally applied when the potting soil is dry out. The immersive watering method is also recommendable if placed in a ventilated and breathable location. Be careful to water along the edge of the pot to the potting soil instead of the rosette and foliage, preventing waterlogging, bacteria, and fungal diseases.
Humidity: E. Caroline is a desert plant that prefers low-humidity environments. It can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, but high humidity can cause the leaves to become mushy and prone to rot. Ensure adequate air circulation around the plant and avoid overwatering to prevent excess moisture.
Temperature: Echeveria Caroline prefers warm temperatures between 65-75°F. It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but keep in mind to protect from frost and extreme heat. If the temperature drops below 50°F, move this cutie to a warmer location to prevent damage.
