To ensure optimal growth and appearance, please refer to the care guide below.

How to care for Echeveria Purpusorum

Sun/Temperature: Like other Echeveria plants, Echeveria Purpusorum enjoy full to partial/filtered sunlight to thrive. Proper sunlight is crucial for succulents during the spring and autumn seasons. By providing adequate light, the brown spots on the leaves of Echeveria Purpusorum will turn red, enhancing the overall beauty of the plant. Soft succulents are not cold-tolerant, so it is important to move potted succulents indoors before winter arrives. However, the succulent plant can tolerate temperature variations of around 50 ℉ in the early morning and evening, especially during the spring and autumn seasons. If the temperature is suitable, Echeveria Purpusorum will bring you delightful transformations.

Soil/Pot: For beginners, professional succulent potting soil can meet most of the growth requirements for succulents. Prepare a specific cactus mix for your succulents. Generally, you can mix perlite or pumice with potting soil in a 1:1 ratio. However, you can adjust the proportion of particles based on the humidity conditions in your city. In arid regions, the particle ratio can be as high as 60%-70%, while in rainy cities, a higher particle content promotes better soil aeration and drainage. Don't forget to choose planter pots with drainage holes.

Watering: Succulents are drought-tolerant plants, which means they don't like to sit in damp soil, and Echeveria Purpusorum is no exception. So, how should you water succulents? The best watering method is the "soak and dry". When you notice slight wrinkling of the leaves, it may be a sign that your succulent underwater, and that's when you can water the succulent thoroughly. Overwatering succulents can cause the leaves to become translucent and gradually rot. Avoid watering succulents during midday in summer, and maintaining a well-ventilated environment after watering is crucial for their health. Click here to learn how to save overwatered succulents.

Propagation: Echeveria Purpusorum is easily propagated from the leaf, which is common among Echeveria propagation. Gently twist a few bottom leaves from the mother succulent and do leaf propagation, which is a decent way to get more succulents.

Pests control: The plump lotus-shaped form and darker leaf color of Echeveria Purpusorum make it attractive to insect feeding. The most common pest is scale insects, which can hide between the leaves and go unnoticed. However, there's no need to worry excessively as these pests can be easily dealt with in the early stages. The simplest method is to spray diluted alcohol to remove the insects. If the infestation becomes severe, thorough cleaning of the succulent and repotting may be necessary.
