Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Echeveria Runyonii after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
i unfortunately underwatered this guy for a long time haha, they’re recovering very well tho! they had scale, hence the scarring, but it wasn’t too hard to treat.
anyway they like to be watered about every 10~12 days in my experience, mine is in a gritty mix and i just watch for wrinkles to know when to water. i think echeveria in general need very bright sun or else they start stretching- so mine stays outdoors (i bring them in at night). but they can handle a couple days of darkness, i don’t put them outside when it’s raining. they have farina so that may rub off if you touch them too much.
overall really easy!! basically just water when the leaves start to wrinkle and make sure they get a lot of sun.
