Painted Echeveria

Echeveria nodulosa

Striking to look at yet simple to care for, this succulent plant is the perfect choice for beginners.

To care for your echeveria, place it in a sunny spot and keep it relatively warm (20-25°C is ideal). The best way to water succulents is using the ‘soak and dry’ method - simply place your plant’s grow pot in a dish full of water and allow the plant to take up as much water as it needs. Then, allow the soil to dry out completely before watering again.

Plant Bio

Hailing from Mexico, the painted echeveria is an enduringly popular houseplant choice. The echeveria family boasts over 150 species, each beautifully unique in its markings and shape. The ‘nodulosa’ in this variety’s Latin name refers to its knotted texture, which is often coloured a dark apple green with red edges.

In the wild the echeveria grows in some tough conditions, including rocky planes and vertical cliff faces. This hardy nature makes it the perfect choice for plant newbies or anyone looking for low-maintenance greenery – it’s almost impossible to kill.
