About Echeveria Red Ebony

Echeveria Red Knight, also called Red Ebony, was originally found growing in Mexico. It's rosette-shaped, and the leaves are as stiff as a sword, with green color and red edges, typical characteristics of Agavoides. Compared to Echeveri agavoides 'Ebony', the leaves are thicker and there is a larger area of red from the front of the leaves. And you can identify Kakimori Echeveri agavoides 'Ebony' and Echeveria Red Ebony from the colors of their leaves. The former one is yellow and the later one is green. Red Ebony is notoriously slow to offset but easily one of the most beautiful and rewarding Echeverias.

How to care for Echeveria Red Ebony

Sun: For Echeveria Red Ebony to flourish, they need significant light. It is recommended that they receive a minimum of four to five hours of bright, direct light in spring and fall. The succulent plants love our summers, so growing them outdoors in a pot or the garden in full sun to partial shade will show off their full potential and intensify the dark outer leaf margins. They are fantastic houseplants. In this case, you can also place them on a bright/sunny windowsill.

Watering: These succulents store water in their leaves, so it's best to wait until the soil has dried out completely before giving them a drink. This will avoid rotting and keep your plant thriving. Water the soil directly and ensure the excess water drains out from the pot in case of leading to fungal disease. When you water too much or too little, your Echeveria Ebony will start to wilt, wrinkle, or drop leaves. You can judge from the leaves if you're not sure whether it's time to water.

Soil: Echeveria Red Ebony is a relatively fast grower. Thus a well-drained succulent soil mixture is essential. Provide them with 30%-40% particle soil media such as perlite and vermiculite when Red Ebony is still young. When it has outgrown the pot, it’s time to repot your succulent, it's best to do so during the warmer months. And 60%-80% particles is needed. Begin the process when you find the soil is completely dry. Gently take the plant from the original planter pot and remove any unhealthy roots. Repot the succulent in fresh soil and water sparingly.

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.

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.
