🪴 Soil

Echeveria Lola is very sensitive to wet soil, so choose a potting soil that drains very well and doesn’t retain too much moisture. A good soil will have lots of perlite or vermiculite for drainage and some organic matter for nutrition. A few handfuls of perlite added to regular store-bought cactus soil will do the trick!

I found this poor baby clinging onto life in a Lowe’s entrance. The soil was bone dry and had no nutrients. Even still, there were only a few brown leaves on the very bottom. I gave him new soil and lots of water and now he’s thriving!
