-How to care for Echeveria sp. 'Pixie Bunny'-
Sun: Succulents have plenty of sunlight to have good color. Echeveria sp. 'Pixie Bunny' prefers abundant but not strong sunlight. In humid and hot areas, it is best to let it bask in the sun for half a day and put the other half in a place with plenty of scattered light. Especially at noon in the hot summer, the sun is too intense, and it is easy to sunburn the succulent. So you should put your succulent plant in place without direct sunlight or add a shade cloth. In winter, you can let it bask in the sun for a day, usually placing it by the window indoors, making the succulent color more attractive.
Soil/Watering: Like most of succulent types, Echeveria sp. 'Pixie Bunny' need well drained succulent soil to maintain healthy roots and, therefore, healthy stems and leaves. So add particles into the soil and choose a planter pot with a good drainage hole that also increases air permeability at the bottom. The proportion of soil particles less than 30% is okay for young succulents. When they grow older, the proportion of particles can be slowly increased, but it is best to stay within 80%. When it comes to watering, soak and dry method is what you should do. Let excess water flow out of the hole, and never let water sit on the leaves or in the pot, as that can cause the succulents to rot.
Temperature: Echeveria succulents grow best in temperatures between 59°F and 86°F. They are summer growers, meaning their peak growing season is during the warm months. When temperatures drop below 53°F in winter, they enter a short dormancy period where growth is suspended. When temperatures fall below 50°F, moving them to a bright indoor location is best to keep them warm. Echeveria succulents should always be planted in an area with cool air circulation.

Propagation: Echeveria sp. 'Pixie Bunny' can be easily propagated using its leaves. Select plump and mature leaves from the bottom of the plant and place the leaves in a well-ventilated area to allow the wound to be callous over, which takes a few days. After that, place the leaves on top of the soil in a pot and then wait for them to grow roots. Click here to learn how to propagate succulent from leaves.
