Temperature: Temperature plays an important role in caring for Echeveria 'Pure Love.' This succulent thrives in moderate to warm temperatures. Ideally, please keep it in an environment where the temperature ranges between 65-85°F during the day. Ensure the temperature doesn't drop below 50°F at night, as lower temperatures can harm the plant. Avoid exposing it to freezing temperatures or frost, as Echeveria 'Pure Love' is not a cold hardy succulent.
Soil: To ensure proper soil care for Echeveria 'Pure Love,' it is recommended to use a lower percentage of drainage gritty rocks, approximately 30%, when the plant is small and young. This helps retain some moisture and provides stability for the young plant. As the Echeveria matures, the particle ratio can be increased to around 70%. This adjustment promotes better drainage and aeration, which benefits the plant's root system as it grows. By modifying the granule ratio according to the plant's stage of development, you can create suitable soil conditions that support the healthy growth of Echeveria 'Pure Love.'
Watering: Water Echeveria Snow Fairy thoroughly but infrequently. To avoid overwatering and potential root rot, it is essential to let the soil dry out completely between each watering, as live succulents are prone to root deeply by applying this watering method. Like other Echeveria, this plant would enter dormancy in the middle of summer and cold winter. During the dormant period, succulent plants will grow slowly, and even stop growing. Unnecessary water will cause plants to rot easily. Click here to learn what succulent dormancy is.
Propagation: To propagate Echeveria 'Pure Love,' carefully select a healthy leaf and let it callus for a few days. Besides traditional soil-rooted propagation, dry propagation is another excellent way to propagate Echeveria succulents.

Once mature, it is up to you that you plant these succulent babies in soil or hydroponic them.
