Red Echeveria Overview
This is a branching, evergreen, sub-shrub species that is commonly grown as an indoor plant. The fleshy, succulent, light green leaves grow in rosettes, have a hairy coating on them and are edged with red. Flowers are bell-shaped, coloured bright orange with gold-yellow throats and arranged on branching inflorescences.
Common problems with Red Echeveria
How to propagate Red Echeveria
Can be propagated from leaves, simply remove cleanly from the mother plant, let callus for a few days until the wound has closed and place on soil or in water and wait for roots to develop. Roots usually grow first to seek out water, followed by new leaves. This may take anywhere from a week to a few months and there is no need to water propagating succulents as they will glean all the nutrition and moisture they require from their mother leaf, which will shrivel up over time. The original leaf may be gently removed once it has dried up and become crispy in texture, only remove if it comes away easily otherwise you risk damaging the baby plant.
