Echeveria Derenbergii Care
Echeveria Derenbergii will need 6 hours of sunlight every single day. Especially if you want this succulent to produce its beautiful flowers and to avoid etiolation it will need to be grown in full sun. Be sure to also give it some partial shade so it can avoid sun damage. This succulent isn't cold hardy, so frost and freezing temperatures will harm and kill the succulent. If the weather gets under 30 degrees it's best to move and grow this succulent indoors during the cold winter season.
It's best to grow the Echeveria Derenbergii in fast/well draining succulent soil. Fast/well draining succulent soil is very important when growing this succulent because it will prevent overwatering and root rot. It's also a good idea to grow this succulent in a pot with a drainage hole. This will allow all the excess water in the soil the drain at the bottom of the hole, this will also help prevent overwatering and root rot.
Water your Echeveria Derenbergii 1-2 days a week or when the soil looks or feels very dry. Be sure to prevent overwatering and under watering. Dry/wrinkled leaves are signs of under watering and mushy/rotting leaves are signs of overwatering. Also make sure to not get water on the leaves of this succulent. This will allow a fungus to grow on the leaves and make them fall off. This will attract succulent pests such as mealybugs.
Echeveria Derenbergii Propagation
The Echeveria Derenbergii can be propagated from cuttings, leaves or seeds. It's best to make sure that the leaves or cuttings form a callus before starting propagation. If there is no callus then there's a chance that your cuttings or leaves will not root. Let the leaves or cuttings sit out for 2-4 days or until a callus forms. Once a callus forms plant the cuttings or leaves in fast/well draining succulent soil. Water 2-3 days a week and give it 4 hours of sunlight and shade every single day.
