About Echeveria 'Orion' (4 inch)

Echeveria 'Orion' has thick leaves with a distinctive bluish-green hue and deep red or purple margins, soft and fleshy with a waxy protective coating that helps minimize water evaporation, and tightly rosette leaves that form a compact, ornate mass. This succulent is not only beautiful, but also drought-resistant, making it ideal for beginners and plant lovers.

How to care for Echeveria 'Orion' (4 inch)

Sun/Temperature: Echeveria 'Orion' prefers full sun, so it is best to keep it indoors in a sunny spot or near a bright window. In winter, it should be moved indoors when temperatures drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. In the summer, it is recommended to keep it in a semi-shaded area to avoid sunburn.

Soil/Watering/Pot: Choose well-draining soil specifically for succulents to prevent waterlogging. Watering should only occur when the soil is completely dry to avoid wetting the leaves. Additionally, removing dried leaves from the bottom during the plant's growth period helps maintain its health. Opt for a wide and shallow pot with drainage holes to ensure adequate ventilation and drainage for the roots.

Propagation: The best time to propagate Echeveria 'Orion' is usually in the spring through the summer and can be done by leaf plugs by selecting healthy leaves and twisting them gently by hand to unscrew them from the plant. The leaves are then placed in a well-ventilated area and allowed to heal their wounds in a cool, dry environment, which usually takes a few days to a week. Once the wound has healed, insert the leaf into pre-prepared soil made for succulents, water it slightly and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. After about two to four weeks, new roots and plantlets will begin to grow.

Fertilizer: Echeveria 'Orion' does not require much fertilizer, generally speaking, it is enough to apply it properly once or twice in a year. And the amount should not be too much each time you use it, otherwise it will waste the fertilizer and cause damage to the plant.

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.

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!!!
