🪴 Soil

Echeveria 'Morning Beauty' 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!

💩 Fertilizer

Echeveria 'Morning Beauty' grows very slowly and doesn’t require added fertilizer. Replacing your plant’s potting soil once a year should provide them with more than enough nutrition. Remember, plants get their energy from sunlight, not fertilizer!

It’s common for Echeveria 'Morning Beauty' to go dormant in the wintertime and you may notice their growth slow down. Waterings should be spaced out more during this time.

🌎 Native Region

Echeveria 'Morning Beauty' is native to Central and northern South America.

🌱 Propagation

Echeveria 'Morning Beauty' can be propagated by the stem method. To propagate:

  • Make a cut just above the node. The node is the break in the stem where the leaf emerges.
  • To get the cutting to root, you can either:
    • Place the cutting in water until roots emerge and are ~2” long and then transplant into well-draining soil, or
    • Place the cutting directly into well-draining soil and water when dry.

🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

This is the second succulent I ever bought. The first one didn’t go well. But I think Sassy will be different. She is thriving in her environment. I use the soak to dry method for watering and she loves it. She had one leave on her bottom that dried out and I removed. The only other issue is her lean toward the sun. I have to constantly rotate her to keep her balanced, but that is proving to be difficult. Either way I love her.

Love the colours, but accidentally nearly killed it when bought as I left it outside in the frost 😬
Bought it back inside and although continued to lose leaves for a couple of weeks, that seems to have stopped now and has grown 4 leaf-like flowers.
