Echeveria is a low-maintenance succulent that offers an unexpected burst of color. The thick, glossy leaves grow in a rosette formation and are a bright green hue. Echeveria agavoides stands out because the triangular-shaped leaves are edged in red along the tips. This pop of color has earned this plant the nickname Lipstick Echeveria.
Best Locations For Growing Echeveria Agavoides
Echeveria agavoides is a pet-safe plant, making it a welcome addition to homes with furry family members. Its nontoxic status allows for flexible placement options. Since Echeverias do not get very big, they are a good size for end tables or desks.
Echeveria Agavoides Sunlight Requirements
Echeveria is one of the few houseplants that can handle direct sunlight. Place this charming succulent in bright indirect light to help it thrive. The Echeveria agavoides is adaptable, and while it prefers bright direct light, it can handle medium and even low indirect light. Plants in low light will grow more slowly, but they can still survive.
Echeveria Agavoides Care
As a succulent, Echeveria agavoides prefers dry conditions and low humidity. This is a plant that does best with a certain degree of neglect. Propagate your plant by removing leaves and placing them on soil. With time, a new plant will grow and take root.
Watering Echeveria Agavoides
In nature, Echeveria grows in arid climates, and the thick leaves of this succulent store water. Let the soil dry out before giving it a drink, and allow the water to drain from the pot when watering. Soggy soil and standing water are perhaps the worst things that can happen to this plant.
Feeding Echeveria Agavoides
Succulents are not heavy feeders. These are hardy plants that live in challenging environments in nature, and they have learned how to grow with minimal nutrition. Echeveria agavoides does not need to be fed, but to jump-start its growth, apply a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once during the early spring.
