Having a busy lifestyle is not an excuse for not getting a new house plant. It is common for individuals living in big and small spaces to acquire succulents as their house plants. This article will specifically describe a succulent called “Sedeveria Fanfare”. As we all know, succulent is a popular choice for a house plant because it is generally easy to grow and has various sizes, colors, and shapes.
Sedeveria Fanfare is native to Brazil. Like most succulents, it is known to be drought-resistant. Its fan-like leaves arrangement gives Sedeveria Fanfare a unique and attractive appearance, making it a popular ornament.
This succulent is a known hybrid between sedum and echeveria. Sedeveria Fanfare can grow up to 6 to 8 inches tall. Generally, it is considered to be a small succulent. It has pointed leaves that formed into a wholly stemmed rosette. Sedeveria Fanfare is primarily blue-green and has a matte finish look due to the powdery coating of flour. The leaves are plump and thick, giving the succulent a fleshy appearance. During the summer season, Sedeveria Fanfare also produces star-shaped pink or yellow flowers.
Propagate Sedeveria Fanfare
You can quickly propagate your Sedeveria Fanfare through stem cuttings and offsets. When propagating through stem cuttings, remember to use a clean garden knife and allow your cuttings to be calloused for two to three days before replanting. This is important to avoid the spread of any existing bacteria on your succulent. When propagating through offsets, choose a healthy mother plant. A healthy mother plant often predicts the success of the offsets to grow fully.

My Care Guide For Fanfare
- Sunlight: Sedeveria Fanfare thrives under full bright sunlight. In case placed indoors, it is essential to provide an artificial light source or at least place them by the window where they can still get some sun rays.
- Watering: You need to water deeply. However, avoid overwatering as it can cause too much damage to your succulent. Always check if the soil is arid before rewatering. Avoid watering your succulent during its dormant season, as it damages the plant.

- USDA Hardiness Zone: 10
- Soil: Use a well-draining succulent soil mixture. The mixture needs 50 to 70 percent mineral grit like coarse sand, perlite, or pumice.
- Pot: Using a container with enough drainage holes is also essential. Proper water drainage is necessary to avoid root rot.
