Description: Echeveria cante is a beautiful plant. Its name honors the Cante Institute and Botanic Garden in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico .
is a summer-growing and relatively easy plant thought not the easiest of the echeverias. It makes great potted specimens.
Exposure: It can tolerate sun to shade but - generally speaking - the more light a plant gets the better it will display its colours and shape. However, when moving plants from lower light conditions into full sun, be wary of sun scorch, most easily avoided by ensuring plants are well-watered before moving them on a cloudy day.
Watering: They can tolerate extended dry periods and survive drought without the need for watering, but they will grow stronger if they receive adequate moisture during their growing season, and never allowing the plant to remain waterlogged (root rot sensitive).
Hardiness: It can tolerate light frosts, but it is best overwintered at 5-10 °C.
With the cooler autumn temperatures their foliage colours become more intense.
