About the Echeveria Monroe
Echeveria Monroe, also known as Echeveria Orange Monroe, earns its name from its bright orange color when in triving, making it exceptionally stunning. As one of the most popular succulent varieties, Echeveria Monroe features thick spoon-shaped leaves. In its default state, Echeveria Monroe displays a blue-green hue with a thick layer of white farina coating its leaves. When blooming, its color transitions from orange to pink, with leaves reaching a translucent jelly-like appearance. In spring, it blooms with tall flower spikes bearing clusters of orange-red flowers.
How to Care for Echeveria Monroe
Sunlight: Echeveria Monroe requires ample sunlight to maintain its color and shape. During spring and autumn, it can be kept outdoors under full sunlight. In summer, provide outdoor plants with shade to prevent sunburn. Ensure at least 10 hours of indirect sunlight or use grow lights.
Temperature: Pressure-induced coloration in succulents typically occurs during seasons with significant temperature fluctuations, particularly in spring, autumn, and early winter. Echeveria Monroe is sensitive to frost and should be moved indoors when temperatures drop below freezing.
Watering: Being a chubby succulent, Echeveria Monroe stores a considerable amount of water in its leaves. During spring and autumn growing seasons, adhere to the soak and dry method, ensuring the bottom watering to preserve the farina on the leaf surface. Reduce watering in winter and summer.
Soil and Pot: For young 2-inch Echeveria Monroe plants, mix 50% potting soil and 50% perlite. Opt for small pots with drainage holes, approximately 3.5 inches in diameter.
