Anyone can grow these hardy evergreens that look sensational and require so little attention. Echeveria plants will make you feel like a great gardener, even if you are not, and they are perfect for beginners or children. You will them for many years to come.
Water Echeveria to establish, then keep just moist in the growing season. Plant into well drained soil in a bright spot. In pots, use a succulent potting mix and water only when it has dried out.
