About Echeveria 'Melaco'

Echeveria 'Melaco' stands out because of its distinctive coloration. Due to its growing condition, the color of the succulent plant is changed, including shades of copper, plum, salmon, and chocolate brown, sometimes with a sea-green center. In deep fall and winter, the flowers of Melaco are bell-shaped and orange in color.

How to care for Echeveria 'Melaco'

Sun/Location: Like most of Echeverias, Echeveria ‘Chrissy ‘n’ Ryan’ requires indirect bright sunlight to maintain the color and shape form. It can be placed outdoors in spring and fall to get full sunlight. Shade is required in summer to avoid sunburn. In winter, protection from frost is needed.

Soil/Pot: To ensure the health of succulents, they need porous, well-draining soil to live in. The cactus soil is mixed with pumice, perlite, or gritty rocks to regular soil to provide proper drainage. Topdressing rocks can make them prettier and cleaner.

Watering: Succulent plants require little watering but don't like to sit in wet soil. The best way of watering is the soak-and-dry method. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry. Try not to pour water on the leaves in an unventilated environment, it can cause rot or fungal diseases that may kill the succulents. Click here to learn how often to water succulents.

We pack all shipments by hand. 

We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

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. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

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!!!
