About Echeveria Zixia Fairy

Echeveria Zixia Fairy is a unique hybrid succulent that boasts a lovely rosette shape. It is believed that one of its parent succulent varieties is Echeveria 'Black Crystal.' As it grows, the green leaves of this succulent will gradually turn purple from the back to the whole leaves, creating a stunning display.

How to Care for Echeveria Zixia Fairy

Sunlight: Echeveria Zixia Fairy needs a minimum of 6 hours of bright or filtered sunlight every day to maintain its compact shape. To enhance its beautiful purple color, it's recommended to plant Zixia Fairy outdoors where it can receive more sun exposure, except during the summer because the direct sun can be too harsh. Then, moving the plant to a shaded area or providing some shade to prevent sunburn is advisable. The coloring spots on the plant can easily be mistaken for sunburn spots.

Water: When watering Echeveria Zixia Fairy, the general rule is to follow the "soak and dry" method. Ensure the potting soil mix to dry out entirely before thoroughly watering the plant. This helps to promote healthy root growth. The plant's bottom leaves are touching soft, which is another sign that triggers water need.

Soil & Planter: To improve the drainage, add around 20-40% perlite and gritty rocks to the potting soil before using it. This succulent variety grows slowly and prefers a planter pot slightly wider than the dimension of its rosette. Make sure that the planter pot has a drainage hole at the bottom.

Temperature: Echeveria Zixia Fairy enjoys living in a warm and dry environment with a temperature range of 50-77℉. Move the plant indoors before the temperature drops to 41℉ as this variety is not a cold hardy succulent.

Fertilizer: Replant the succulent with fresh organic soil every spring, which can provide the essential nutrients for them to thrive. Moreover, feeding them with slow-release fertilizer two or three times in spring can also meet the need.

Propagation: Leaf propagation is an efficient way to grow more succulents. It is important to take healthy and plump leaves from the mother plant and let the wound callus over before placing them on the soil.

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.

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.
