It’s widely used for decoration among many succulent lovers and in this article you’ll find out you why! Also, you will learn how to care for this echeveria in order for it to reach its full potential!
Echeveria Suyon has elliptical and fleshy leaves with a pointed tip. They are lush green, but get red and pink hues when this echeveria deals with stress. They are also fleshy because they store water. You’ll notice waxy powder covering the leaves – it helps them in water storing and also protects them from excessive sunlight.

Echeveria Suyon Care
Sunlight: In order to see Echeveria Suyon’s full potential and beauty, give it at least 6 hours of bright, direct sunlight every day. Protect it from harsh afternoon sun, as it can cause sunburn.
Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Echeveria Suyon doesn’t like extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold. During winter, place it inside. Provide some shade during summer when hottest part of the day comes. Prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can lead to leaf discoloration and reduced growth.
Water: Water once every 1-2 weeks during active growing season(spring and summer), and reduce to 2-4 weeks during winter. Before you follow this schedule its important to adjust it according to your plant needs – the best way to know when to water Echeveria Suyon is when soil gets dry. When you water your succulents do so thoroughly. Avoid watering the leaves – they store water. Instead, water around the base of the plant.
Fertilizer: Use fertilizer designed for succulents. It’s important to dilute it until it has 1/4 of it’s original strength – succulents don’t need too much nutrients, but excessive amount can damage their roots. Apply fertilizer once every 4-6 weeks during active growing season. Make sure to water it first.
For healthy growth, repot your Echeveria Suyon when you notice one of these signs:
- Your echeveria has outgrown it’s current container
- Your echeveria became root bound
- Your echeveria got diseased
Water your plant 1-2 days before repotting. You’ll need a one-size bigger pot, gardening shears and well-draining soil to repot your echeveria. Here’s how to do it:
- Remove your plant from it’s current container
- Cut dead or damaged roots
- Fill new pot with well-draining soil
- Plant your echeveria in the middle of the new pot
Give the soil some time to settle and your echeveria to adapt to its new place. First couple of days water lightly and place it under bright, indirect sunlight.
If your echeveria got diseased, you can trim dead, damaged and diseased leaves in order to stop disease from spreading.
Propagate using leaf cuttings. Cut a healthy leaf and let it form a callus. Plant it in well-draining soil. Water lightly and provide bright, indirect sunlight. Once your cutting has grown to a reasonable size, transplant it into a larger container.
