The more sunlight the Echeveria 'Golden Glow' gets the more colorful and brighter the leaves look. This succulent will need about 6 hours of sunlight every single day to avoid etiolation and to produce its beautiful colors.

Echeveria 'Golden Glow' isn't cold hardy, which means it can't grow in weather under 30 degrees. Frost and freezing temperatures will harm and kill this succulent. If it gets under 30 degrees in your location then make sure to move and grow this succulent indoors for the cold winter season.
Echeveria 'Golden Glow' must be grown in fast/well draining succulent soil. This is very much needed because fast/well draining succulent soil will protect this succulent from overwatering and root rot. It's also best to grow it in a succulent pot with a drainage hole, this will also help prevent overwatering and root rot.
For watering the Echeveria 'Golden Glow' you should give it water about 1-2 days a week or when the soil looks or feels very dry. Make sure you do not overwater this succulent, overwatering will simply threaten this succulent with root rot.

This succulent will also attract succulent pests such as mealybugs if dead leaves remain in the soil. You have to make sure that you don't get water on the leaves so fungus won't occur. The fungus will grow on the leaves and eventually eat away at them, making the leaves fall in the soil.

The Echeveria 'Golden Glow' can be propagated by cuttings, leaves, or by seeds. You just need to simply trim some leaves or cuttings and let them sit out for 2-4 days.
