Watering and Feeding
As Echeveria blue rose is adapted to dry conditions, it does not require much water. It can even withstand brief periods of drought. Use a slow-release fertilizer or a liquid fertilizer that has been diluted 2 to 4 times more than usual and is applied less frequently than recommended.
It is critical to have good drainage when planting the Echeveria blue rose. Excessive water is one of the succulents' worst enemies. The container's bottom should have adequate drainage holes.
Echeveria blue rose is not cold hardy as it has a frost tolerance of 10° C (50° F) and a hardiness zone of 9b.
Echeveria blue rose necessitates a lot of direct sunlight per day. It should be planted in a location that receives full to partial sun exposure.
Twist a leaf from the mother plant to propagate this succulent from leaves. If any of the leaves remain on the stem, your chances of success will be reduced. Allow the leaf to dry for a few days and then place it in well-draining soil.
Blue Rose Echeveria ‘Strawberry Cactus’ is a lucky plant and brings wealth, good fortune, and prosperity to the home.
