How to Care for Lilacina Ghost Echeveria Succulent
After purchasing your Ghost Echeveria Lilacina Plant, be sure to read our recommended care instructions to ensure a healthy and happy succulent for years to come.
How often do I water my Echeveria Lilacina Succulent plant?
Once established, water your succulent plant infrequently. Their thick leaves are meant to carry water to allow for dry spells but they also make them more succeptible to overwatering. When caring for a young of newly potted plant, watering may need to be done more frequently.
What soil is best for my Echeveria Ghost succulent?
While any potting mix will work just fine, we recommend using a rich nutritious mix that contains perlite and peat moss for optimal drainage; an example of this would be Espoma Organic Cactus Mix.
How do I repot my Ghost Echeveria Succulent?
When the time is right to repot your succulent plant, choose a container that is no more than 2 inches wider than the current pot, and make sure it has drainage holes in the bottom. Layer rocks or clay pebbles at the bottom and cover with some cactus-mix potting soil. Carefully remove your succulent from the container and loosen the roots at the bottom. place your succulent in the pot where the top of the root system is level with the top of the pot; add soil if necessary. Backfill with more potting mix and water your plant slowly to encourage the roots to settle in their new home.
When should I fertilize my Succulent Ghost Lilacina Echeveria Plant?
In order to promote healthy growth in your Echeveria Ghost, fertilize it in the spring, or when repotting. An all-purpose low-balanced fertilizer will work perfectly; it is up to user preference when deciding which type to use.
