-How to care for Echeveria Tippy-
Soil: Because it is very drought resistant, it is necessary to plant it in loose, breathable, and nutrient-rich soil, with granular soil accounting for more than 70%, so the plant will more easily thrive. It should have some organic matter (peat moss, coconut coir, etc.) and be neutral or slightly acidic in PH.
Sun: Full sun to partial sun is needed for Echeveria Tippy to thrive. If you water a succulent indoors, do not immediately move it outside in the sun, which will burn it easily.
Watering: Echeveria Tippy dislikes wetness and tolerates drought. It can be watered thoroughly during its growing season after the soil dries out. In summer, when it is dormant, reduce the amount of water. In winter, control the water. Rot or fungal diseases that can kill the plant may occur if the water stays in the rosette, so be careful to avoid that.
Temperature: Echeveria Tippy prefers a warm, dry, well-ventilated environment with plenty of light. It will go dormant in summer when the temperature and sunlight are too high, so it needs some shade and less water during this time. It grows best in the range of 65-70°F and should not be lower than 41°F in winter.
Propagation: leaf cutting, stem cutting, or seeds are the ways to propagate Echeveria Tippy. For leaf cutting, take a healthy leaf from the parent plant and let the cut end dry for a few days. Then put it on soil that drains well and spray it with water now and then until roots grow.
