Echeveria Colorata Care

The Echeveria 'Colorata' must be grown in full sun so it can produce its bright colors and so it can avoid etiolation. This succulent will need at least 6 hours of sunlight every single day to grow healthy and happy. It's also important that you give this succulent some partial shade so it can avoid sun damage. This succulent isn't cold hardy, so don't grow it outdoors under 30 degree weather. It won't survive freezing temperatures or frost, so grow it indoors to avoid cold weather.

The echeveria colorata must be grown in fast/well draining succulent soil. Fast/well draining succulent soil is very important because it will help prevent overwatering and root rot. Also make sure you grow this succulent using a succulent pot with a drainage hole. This will also prevent overwatering and root rot because the excess water will drain out the bottom of the pot. 

When watering the echeveria colorata make sure that you water it only 1-2 days a week. Make sure to not overwater this succulent because overwatering causes root rot. Be on the lookout for under watering and overwatering symptoms. Be sure to not get water on the leaves of this succulent, this will cause fungus to grow on the leaves. The leaves will eventually fall into the soil attracting succulents pests such as mealybugs.

Echeveria Colorata Propagation:

The echeveria colorata can be propagated by stem cuttings, leaves, and seeds. Before propagation, make sure that your cuttings and leaves form a callus before planting. Let the leaves and cuttings sit out for 2-4 days or until a callus forms. Once the callus forms then go ahead and plant the cuttings or leaves in fast/well draining succulent soil. Water 2-3 days a week and give it at least 4 hours of sunlight and partial shade. For more details on propagation you can check out our article on how to propagate succulents.
