About Echeveria ‘Mozel’
Echeveria' Mozel', a succulent of the genus Echeveria in the Crassulaceae family, is a beautiful plant whose spoon-shaped leaves are green with red edges. The leaves form a beautiful rose-liked cluster. When it thrives, the plant is wrapped, the leaves are gray-green, and the red edges are thickened. A succulent that bears a striking resemblance is the Echeveria 'Amistar'.
How to care for Echeveria ‘Mozel’
Soil: The soil for planting Mozel can choose loose and breathable media, such as peat/coconut peat, granular soil preparation, and the proportion of granular soil can be high. The primary function of granular soil is to ensure the permeability of the soil. After watering, the soil dries out faster and does not allow the fleshy roots to rot. As long as the particles comprise about 60% of the succulent soil, its air permeability can be guaranteed. That helps the succulents grow better.
Watering: Echeveria 'Mozel' can survive without much water but thrives when given some hydration and nourishment. When the plant is in its growth phase, make sure to water it generously. Water only after the soil has dried. During its dormant period in winter, reduce watering and only give it a small amount of water.
Sun/Temperature: Echeverias need a significant amount of light to flourish. They require a minimum of four to five hours of direct, bright sunlight each day, with six hours being ideal. If Echeverias do not receive full sun, they may shed their bottom leaves and become "leggy" and less appealing during the winter. To avoid this, ensure they receive up to six hours of sunlight or use artificial lighting. Echeverias are generally able to withstand cold temperatures down to USDA zone 9a, where the average winter temperature is no lower than 50° F. In regions with colder winters, it is recommended to move it indoors.
Propagation: it can be propagated easily by separating pups. Use scissors to cut pups off and let them dry in a shaded area until the cut area forms a callus. Next, put the plants in well-draining soil, give them a small amount of water, and place them in a location with good lighting.
Fertilizer: Succulents of the genus Echeveria do not require fertilization to grow well. However, slow-release fertilizers or liquid fertilizers that are diluted can be used in the spring, and the frequency of use is lower than recommended on the fertilizer packaging.
