Some people know Echeveria by the name 'hens and chicks', but people also call a lot of succulents that. The genus is named after Atanasio Echeverria y Godoy, an 18th-century Mexican botanical artist aned naturalist. His drawings would have killed on Instagram.
Bright, direct sun to bright indirect light.
Water weekly to semi-monthly. Allow potting mix to completely dry out before watering. The smaller the pot, the faster the soil dries out. If it's in direct sun, it will need more frequent waterings, as the sun will dry it out faster. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot. Remember, these are desert plants- they can go for a while without a drink.
The easiest way to kill an Echeveria is to overwater it or leave it wet for too long! Love this one more by tending to it less. #independentplant
