Lighting: Echeveria ‘Blue Curls’ thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Please avoid harsh or intense sunlight because it can impact your leaf’s surface. Place it where it can receive at least six hours of sunlight daily. If growing indoors, position it near a sunny window or provide grow lights for at least 12 hours and the maximum is 14 hours.

Soil and Watering: Use a kind of soil that drains water well. This will help your succulent not to suffer root rot. Water ‘Blue Curls’ thoroughly until the water flows out the drainage hole. Wait for the soil to dry out between watering sessions, adjusting the frequency based on environmental conditions. However, normally, in growing seasons is once every 2 to 3 weeks, and in dormant seasons is once a month or even less.

Temperature: Echeveria ‘Blue Curls’ prefers moderate temperatures ranging from 18°C to 27°C. Protect it from freezing temperatures and extreme heat. This succulent does well in USDA hardiness zones 9 to 11.

Propagation: You can use offsets or leaf cutting methods to make more of them. Gently separate the offsets from the main plant or select a healthy leaf and allow it to callus before planting it in well-draining soil. Provide indirect light and mist the soil occasionally until new growth emerges.

Commonly Asked Questions About Echeveria ‘Blue Curls’

A thread from u/ansust: “Need some help with the props on my Echeveria ’blue curls’ stem. Lately they’ve stopped growing and started shriveling. I water maybe every other week and they are under a grow light for 13 hours. Should I put them in a shadier spot? Water more?”

Answer: I think your succulent needs more water and put them in a shadier spot. Because the only nutrition source is from watering and the soil, the plant takes a larger amount than normal until it gets new pups.
