Cultivation and Care
Light: Echeveria ‘Crinoline Ruffles’ thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Providing at least six hours of sunlight each day is recommended to promote healthy growth and vibrant leaf coloration. Protect the plant from intense, direct sunlight, especially during hot summer afternoons.
Temperatures: This Echeveria prefers a range between 18°C and 29°C during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night.
Soil and Watering: To ensure optimal growth, Echeveria ‘Crinoline Ruffles’ requires well-draining soil. A mixture of cactus or succulent-specific soil combined with perlite or pumice helps create the right balance. Water the plant thoroughly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Often this succulent needs watering once every 2 to 3 weeks in growing seasons and once a month in dormant seasons.
Propagation: Echeveria ‘Crinoline Ruffles’ can be propagated through various methods, including leaf cuttings and offsets. When taking leaf cuttings, allow the cut ends to callus for a few days before placing them on well-draining soil. Offsets, also known as “chicks,” can be gently separated from the mother plant and replanted in their pots. These new plants will grow and develop their characteristic ruffled foliage with proper care.
