How to care for Echeveria Pink Crystal
Soil/Fertilizer: Like other Elegans succulents, E. Pink Crystal hates growing in wet environments. Improve the drainage by mixing gritty rocks or perlite with regular potting soil. Or you can purchase our professional ready-to-use succulent soil mix. During growing seasons, feed succulents with slow-release fertilizer or mix some organic nutrients such as tree bark and dry rot leaves into the soil every year, which can meet their requirement for better growth.
Watering: All live succulents are dry-tolerant, requiring less water than other houseplants. The "soak and dry" watering method works excellently on Echeveria Pink Crystal and other Echeveria succulents. Typically, once water per week in spring and fall, and reduce water(once per ten days or once per month) in summer and winter as long as the leaves are chubby and fresh. All plants would tell you they are thirsty by wilting their leaves. And succulent plants are the most typical type among them. Using a long-neck bottle to water the topsoil instead of watering the plants is another tip in summer. Because the water sitting in plant crowns quickly causes center rot or sunburn in summer.

Location: As said before, identifying Echeveria elegant succulents is super challenging. They require at least eight hours of sun exposure to get thriving. So a sunny location such as a south-facing window or yard is essential to growing this type of succulent.
