-How to care for Echeveria 'Snow Bunny'-
Sun/Temperature: Growing Echeveria 'Snow Bunny' is not challenging. During the summer, providing adequate shade and ensuring proper ventilation is essential. In the other seasons, it can enjoy full sunlight exposure or be experimented with outdoor cultivation. Insufficient sunlight can lead to a greening of the leaves. When the temperature is above 86°F, provide shade using shade cloth or putting it indoors to protect the Echeveria 'Snow Bunny' from direct sunlight and increase ventilation for better air circulation. When winter is too cold(lower than 41°F), it is better to be put indoors to provide a warm environment.
Soil/Watering: To maintain the well-being of succulents, it is vital for them to inhabit porous soil that allows efficient drainage.

Pot: Echeveria 'Snow Bunny' exhibits distinct variations in appearance based on the different sizes of pot used. When grown in small pots, 'Snow Bunny' leaves become short and thick, tightly wrapped like little dumplings. Conversely, if planted in larger pots, 'Snow Bunny' grows faster and may even outgrow the pot. In this case, its leaves become longer and thinner, while the overall plant form appears more loosely arranged.
Propagation: Unlike some other Echeveria varieties, Echeveria 'Snow Bunny' is relatively low-maintenance after potting. You don't have to worry much about it. Over time, it will gradually grow on its own, eventually producing numerous offsets and forming a multi-headed cluster. So propagating through offsets is a good way. First, identify offsets growing alongside the main plant; then prepare a well-draining pot with succulent soil mix; next, gently separate the offsets from the mother plant, let the offsets dry for a day or two; finally, plant the offsets in the prepared pot give them a little water. You should put them where they can receive bright, indirect sunlight.
