Echeveria Tolimanensis Care

Sunlight: Echeveria Tolimanensis should receive at least 6 hours of bright, direct sunlight every day. If you don’t provide enough sun, the stems may become leggy. Put this echeveria under shade during afternoon hours – harsh sun can cause sunburn.

Temperature: Everything between 65°F to 75°F is great for Echeveria Tolimanensis’ growth. It’s not cold hardy and doesn’t like to be exposed to extreme heat too long. Prolonged exposure to these conditions can cause wilting, brown and yellow leaves.

Water: Water when soil feels dry. How fast soil will dry out depends on the season. It will dry out faster during active growing season(spring and summer), so water it approx. every 2-3 weeks. During winter, it will need more time, so water it every 4-6 weeks. Water thoroughly, around the base of the plant. Avoid watering the leaves.

Soil: Get a soil that drains well. If excess water stays around the roots of your echeveria they may start to rot. You can make your own well-draining soil or simply get succulent or cactus potting mix.

Fertilizer: Use diluted fertilizer for succulents every 4-6 weeks during active growing season only. Make sure to water your succulents before applying fertilizer. Water will make nutrients spread evenly between the roots.


Repot once every 1-2 years or even before if you notice that your Echeveria Tolimanensis has outgrown its pot or became sick. Always water 1-2 days before transplanting your succulents.

When you are ready to repot your echeveria, remove it from its current pot and cut away damaged or dead roots. Fill new, one-size bigger pot with well-draining soil and plant your echeveria in it. After repotting, let your echeveria settle. Water it lightly, and place it under bright, indirect sunlight for a couple of days.

If you notice yellowing or diseased leaves make sure to cut them. You’ll prevent the spread of possible disease on other parts of your echeveria. Leggy stems can be trimmed back too for better appearance. After blooming, spent flowers serve no purpose, so you will do your echeveria a favor by cutting them.

Echeveria Tolimanensis will start to produce offsets after some time. You can remove them from soil and let them dry for 1-2 days before planting them. Until their root system develops, water them lightly and place them under bright, indirect sunlight.

You can multiply Echeveria Tolimanensis through leaf cuttings too. Simply cut a healthy leaf and let it dry. Plant it after and water lightly until roots develop. Also, during this period make sure to provide bright, indirect sunlight.
