Cat ladies? Please, that's so 2010. We see you that collection of feline friends and raise you an urban jungle - #plantladiesforlife. And since birds of a feather have to stick together, we've boxed up one of our favorite plants that loves plant ladies (and gentlemen) like us right back - a Devotion echeveria. We've also included some of our top tips below to help you be the best possible plant parent for your new little pal.
Devotion echeveria grow best with medium to high light. Extra sunlight and cooler evening temperatures help these little guys perform a little magic and intensify their crimson leaf coloration!
Devotion prefers to stay on the dry side - water as needed but let the soil dry out completely in between waterings. To test, stick your finger into the soil to about 1" in depth. If it's dry, it's time to give it a little H2O! Pro Tip: When watering, make sure to water the soil and not the rosette. Pooling water on leaves can cause rot.
For easy watering, we've potted your new echeveria in a lightweight, plastic pot with a drainage hole. This is set snugly inside that streamlined gold, metal vessel. Prior to watering, remove the line from the inner pot. Let any excess water drain from the soil for 10-15 minutes after your hydration session before returning to the gold vessel to prevent excessive build-up of moisture.
