-How to care for Echeveria 'Pink Spots'-
Sun: Echeveria 'Pink Spots' requires substantial sunlight to thrive. Please give it direct sunlight in the growing period, the succulent can tolerate direct sunlight in the morning. Moving it indoors or under a shade cloth at noon in the hot summer is best to receive plenty of indirect light.
Temperature: Echeverias are soft succulents that thrive between 65°F and 70°F and can be damaged by temperatures below 50°F. They can grow outdoors in USDA zones 9 and 10, but in other zones, it is recommended to grow them as houseplants during the colder months and gradually move them outside once the risk of frost has passed.
Soil: To ensure your succulents thrive, it is best to utilize an organic soil mix designed specifically for their growth needs. When dealing with smaller succulents, it is important to avoid using a high proportion of particle soil, as it may hinder their growth. However, adding about 30% particles to increase water permeability is acceptable. For mature succulents, a higher percentage of particles (around 70%-80%) is recommended to promote air permeability and prevent root black rot. This type of soil mix allows for proper drainage and prevents excess water from accumulating.
Watering: During winter, the temperature can drop to as low as 50°F. To make sure that Echeveria 'Pink Spots' is flourishing during this period, it's essential to take proper care of them; it is recommended to increase the frequency of watering slightly and employ the "Soak and Dry" method. If the temperature falls below 41°F, it is advisable to control the amount of water given and only provide a small amount around the edges of the pot. It is not advisable to completely cut off the water supply. Additionally, it is best to avoid watering your plants after they have been exposed to direct sunlight during the summer season, as this can cause damage to them.
Propagation: Leaf propagation is an excellent method for propagating Echeveria 'Pink Spots'. During the growing season, healthy and thick leaves can be removed and placed on moist soil in a cool, well-ventilated area. After about ten days, roots will begin to grow.
