This easy to care for houseplant is perfect for any gardening novice.
There are around 150 species of these plants. They are succulent and may be shrubby or herbaceous in character, deciduous and evergreen forms exist. Most of them are grown indoors or in houses, on windowsills. Typically they form attractive rosettes of fleshy leaves that are in shades of green, blue and mauve.
The leaves may be silvered or have red tips. They delight with their intriguing shapes and overall can be rounded or jagged in their effect. The flowers are held on fleshy stems and are individually small and usually coloured in shades of yellow pink and red. Echeveria are not frost-hardy and need well drained soil. They can be put outside for the summer months and should be regularly watered whilst in growth.
Place in an area which will recieve a lot of sunlight, ideally directly on a windowsill.
Be careful not to overwater these, only water moderate amounts in dry hot weather and ensure the soil has dried out completely before rewatering. Try to water the soil rather than the plant itself as this can cause problems.
The plant's growth rate and size will vary depending on planting position & conditions.
