-How to care for Echeveria 'Melaco'-
Sun/Location: Compared to other Echeveria succulents, Echeveria Melaco is hardier and can be grown outdoors in moderate climates, but can't tolerate frost. Succulent plants like bright indirect sunlight and partial shade.
Soil/Pot: Echeveria Melaco prefers loose and well-drained soil to grow, so the succulent soil mix should be used. Other mediums are recommended to add to the potting soil, the perlite, grit, and pumice can avoid overwatering.
