Echeveria purpusorum

Echeveria Purpusorum, or as most of you know it, Urbinia Purpusii belongs to the Crassulaceae family and is native to Mexico, Pueblo, and Oaxaca. Growing up to a height of 3 inches tall, the plant is rosette shaped and experiences dormancy in both summer and winter.

Growth Rate

This succulent plant grows slowly so it does not usually bloom very often, but when it does, you are sure to witness attractive flowers that last long.

Flowering

When in bloom (late spring), Echeveria purpusorum flowers appear in bright red color with yellow tips. The leaves are mottled with small reddish-brown spots.

Watering and Feeding

During the blooming, 1 to 2 waterings a week and in winter, light watering 1 time a month is enough. Adding a flower plant fertilizer will help extend the blooming. Feed once a month with a dilute solution to give added Echeveria purpusorum care.

Soil

Well-draining soil made of coarse sand, perlite, pumice, gravel, or bark is ideal. You should avoid large amounts of water-retaining ingredients like peat moss or clay.

Hardiness

Echeveria Purpusorum is not cold hardy, so make sure you keep it at a temperature lower than -6.7°C. It is possible to grow the plant outdoors in a hardiness zone of 9a.

Light

The Echeveria purpusorum light requirements are Partial sun or partial shade, but full sun may be appropriate in some areas. Climates that get extremely hot may not be appropriate since the plant may get sunburned.

Propagation

Echeveria has a reputation as being one of the easiest succulents to propagate due to its ease of care. Echeveria purpusorum propagation can be done with seeds, cuttings, or offsets.

A word of caution: To prevent pests from taking over your garden, it’s important to quarantine all new plants for at least two weeks.
