Echeveria Affinis Black Form 65mm
The Echeveria are a stunning type of succulent, with a sculptural rosette shape. In so many amazing varieties this succulent is highly collectable and is also easy care.
Light - Echeveria love full sun or part shade. Strong sun brings out the best leaf colour, so best kept outdoors. Keep an eye on heavy frost, as though many Echeveria tollerate frost, most hybrids are more sensitive.
Water - The easiest way to kill your succulent overwatering, so keep this in mind whenever you are reaching for the watering can. Too much water will lead to root rot, especially in winter, so barely water during winter and once a week during summer should be plenty. Many people find bottom watering to be the most effective way to water their succulents.
Propagation - Easy to propagate by single leafs or cut stems. Can prop in sand, or straight into soil, but do so in warmer months for the best success rates.
Soil - Prefers a well draining soil, such as a succulent and cactus mix. Add some course sand or grit to your regular potting mix and it willalso be great.
