About Echeveria 'PikaChu'

Echeveria 'PikaChu' is a rare hybrid in Korea,leaves are covered with a plump and broad layer of farina, which has a pointed tip. The underside of the leaf is green, and the upper part is brownish-red. The leaves are tightly arranged in a rosette formation. 

How to Care for Echeveria 'Pikachu'

Sun/Temperature: Adequate sunlight is essential for Echeveria 'Pikachu' to maintain its compact form and beautiful coloration, and it requires 5-6 hours of bright direct or indirect light per day. Echeveria 'PikaChu' prefers warmer conditions but can tolerate some lower temperatures. It thrives in temperatures from 50-80°F. Because freezing temperatures can severely damage or even kill the plant, it is important to bring it indoors during the colder months.

Soil/Watering: A well-drained soil mixture is crucial for Echeveria' Pikachu' 's proper growth and well-being. Alternatively, you can create one by combining equal parts of potting soil, coarse sand, and perlite. To water your plant from the bottom, immerse it for about fifteen minutes or until the soil surface is moist.

Pot: It is essential to ensure that your container has enough drainage holes for proper water drainage.

Propagation: Leaf propagation can be achieved by selecting healthy leaves and allowing them to dry in the shade to form calluses. Then, using a spray bottle, they can be transferred to slightly moist soil.

Disease and Pest: Aphids feed on Echeveria 'PikaChu' sap, which causes the leaves to twist and secrete honeydew. However, you can clean up the mess by wiping the leaves with a soapy solution. On the other hand, overwatering can result in the stems softening, yellowing, and stunting growth, which can eventually lead to root rot. Hence, it is essential to water sparingly and watch for standing water.

Shipping

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!!!
