-How to care for the Echeveria Rosima Raindrop/ Echeveria Longissima var. Bumps (Rare)-
Sun: It needs plenty of sunlight during the spring and autumn growing seasons. When the sun is intense in the summer, be careful not to let it bask in the fierce sun. The stronger the sunlight, the thicker and fuller the leaves, the more beautiful color, and the bumps on the leaves are more rounded and prominent. If the sunlight is insufficient, the leaves of the raindrops will excessively grow, become thin and thin, and the bumps will degenerate.
Soil/Watering: It is necessary to water regularly during the growth period. You can water live succulents once in half a month, but it only likes to water a little. Once watered too much, it will cause the roots to rot. Please remember the principle of "thoroughly dry before thoroughly watering". And you also need to choose succulent soil with good air permeability, drainage, and moderate particle size.
Temperature: The optimal temperature is around 50°F to 77°F. Try to keep the temperature within this range, and take measures for summer and winter. If the weather is hot in summer, put the succulent plants in a place that can be naturally shaded. If not, you must use sunshade nets when the sun is strongest at noon and afternoon. In wintery weather regions, move it inside when frost threatens.
Fertilizer: An appropriate amount of fertilizer can be applied regularly during vigorous growth, but pay attention to the good dosage and concentration. You can use either a cactus and succulent fertilizer or a balanced 20-20-20 liquid fertilizer diluted two to four times more than the usual amount for fertilizing cacti and succulents. For young succulent plants, using a fertilizer with low nitrogen content is recommended. In the summer, their growth rate is slow, and they need to reduce or stop fertilizing. You can add some organic nutrients such as egg shells and tea residue in the potting soil to feed live succulents in the middle of spring, which encourages them to grow stronger roots and stems before the cruel summer.
