Watering: Succulent plants are known for their low water requirements. Under the condition of loose and breathable potting soil, it is best to keep the potting soil slightly dry. We recommend that the newly received Echeveria Mebina Variegata be given minimal water after repotting, keeping the soil slightly moist to allow the succulent to gradually acclimate to its new environment and develop new root systems.

Other tips: Variegated succulents need enough light to stimulate the synthesis and decomposition of chlorophyll to form pigmentation, but variegated leaves that lack chlorophyll are more prone to sunburn than ordinary leaves, and long-term strong direct sunlight is not safe for variegated succulents. It is a good choice to prepare a planting location for variegated succulents that can get soft sunlight in the morning and bright indirect sunlight in the afternoon (such as proper shade).
