Pearl Echeveria does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
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.
What other plant parents say
Remington came from a grocery store, so of course better light conditions and plant food would make him bussin’. He’s grown about 3 inches from original base to curving stalk + 8 new leaves after 3 months. Be gentle in removing dead leaves, use a tweezer and nip it at the base of the stalk. This helps in continued growth to rest of the plant. I also use a dropper when watering day happens. 3-4 full pipette drops at the most. One through rinse once a month(slowly run water from surface till dripping through bottom). Plant food once a month to keep the growth spirts going.
