-About Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow-

Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow, which belongs to Echeveria Genus in the Crassulaceae family, is a succulent with farina on its leaves which looks like a layer of white frost. It is a rare attractive succulent with tightly compacted, plump, red leaves that form a beautiful rosette. The tips of its leaves are easy to turn red which is darker than the color of the center. Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow is a hybrid breed similar to Echeveria Red Velvet sp. Unknow. However, the leaves of the latter are more pinkish and not so compact.

-How to care for Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow-

Sun: Most soft succulents like sufficient indirect sunlight, so does Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow. It requires plenty of sunlight to thrive. Although the succulent needs a lot of sunlight, try to avoid exposing it to the direct sun at noon in summer, which can easily cause sunburn. It is a good option that places them indoors or shade cloth.

Temperature: Echeveria succulents are hardy to USDA zones 10 to 11, which means they can survive if the temperature is not below 30°F. Even so, try to move the succulents to a well-lit place indoors in winter, and then reduce the water supply.

Soil: Using the right soil is very important. Choose a well drained potting soil for succulents, which can prevent the roots from rotting. Click here to know how to make your succulent soil.

Watering: The best frequency for watering your succulents is whenever the leaves show very early signs of under-watering, such as the leaves start wrinkling. Succulents may melt or rot if they are in wet soil for a long time. So, soak the soil completely, then let the soil dry out completely before watering again. 

Fertilizer: Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow does not need to get fertilizer frequently. Once a year is enough. A more effective method is repot succulent. It can be done in spring or autumn, once a year, minimally. Click here to learn how to repot succulent.

Propagation: Due to its chubby leaves, propagating by leaf is a good way for Echeveria 'Red Velvet' sp. Unknow. Propagate succulent leave in springtime. Choose the mature and healthy leaves from the bottom, then shake them gently until they are removed. Next, allow them to sit in a dry, well-ventilated area for a few days to callus over. Finally, place the leaves on the soil and let it get indirect light and good ventilation.

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.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

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.
