This was my first houseplant, and he is so easy to take care of! Even when my cat knocked him over he may have lost all of his lower leaves and the top of the stem got snapped off, he grew back stron…
These succulents may not look like much, but they can withstand anything, it is practically impossible to kill these suckers, and when my dog had a not to friendly encounter with mine, it’s leaves pr…
I have held off overwatering this succulent by using the Greg app relentlessly. I have a tendency to over water any and all succulents. But with this app I only water when needed. This one is getting…

I have no idea what’s happening with mine. The leaves are turning brown, as if from over watering, but if anything it’s been under watered. The new growth looks good, it’s the old growth that’s getti…
Watering too much will cause it to start rotting🙈 just take it out of its plant pot and swap to another and pull all dead parts off (only the brown!!!) That solved my problem when I first got it apar…

Honestly mine is on it’s last legs (or roots) because I over watered it and it got root rot. After sorting it out it seems better. It’s lasted a year already with my torture so I’m pretty sure it’s h…
I accidentally smushed this guy on the way home from the nursery, but I’ve left him in the window and he’s slowly but surely grown at least three more plants coming from the damaged areas. Whatta cha…
Grows super fast. I’ve had this plant for a number of years and it’s put up with a fair amount of abuse and it’s sprung back super well. I’d recommend this as a first plant or for a beginner.
How to care for Pearl Echeveria
Pearl Echeveria needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Pearl Echeveria love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Pearl Echeveria does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Pearl Echeveria in your home 🏡.
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 Pearl Echeveria after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
