Succulent houseplants are popular plants for window sills, brighten desks and other indoor spaces where you can show them off. Great for weddings! Protect from frost.
Echeveria pulidonis is a slow-growing succulent. Echeveria has stemless rosettes up to 5 inches wide of fleshy, incurved, red-edged, pale bluish-green leaves that are flat to slightly concave on the upper surface and rounded below with a distinct red tip. Though often seen as solitary, it will offset to form a good size clump over time. In spring the bright yellow flowers tip multiple unbranched reddish stems that bend over with the weight of the flowers.
A great plant for living wreaths, containers or as a small-scale ground cover in a rock or succulent garden. Do not over-water. A light misting of water with a spray bottle once or twice a week is adequate for most succulents.
Succulents are FAR more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit “under-full” when they need water.
Dry soil is necessary. Succulents should be potted in a fast-draining mixture that’s designed for cacti and succulents. Modifying basic potting mix with approximately half potting mix to half Perlite or Vermiculite.
Perfect as a houseplant.
