Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Echeveria ‘Azulita'

Echeveria ‘Azulita' is a small succulent that grows well indoors in bright light. It propagates easily. Its flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

Watering

‘Azulita' has typical watering needs for a succulent. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

Echeveria ‘Azulita' is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.

When planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you're in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Azulita'

Echeveria ‘Azulita' can be propagated from leaves and offsets.

Leaves

To propagate ‘Azulita' from leaves, twist a leaf from the mother plant. Be sure that none of the leaf remains on the stem, or you will have a smaller chance of success.

Allow the leaf to dry out for several days so that the end callouses over, and then place on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil is completely dry.

Offsets

‘Azulita’ will produce small rosette offsets. Cut the offsets off from the main stem with a sharp, sterile knife or scissors. Allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before laying on well-draining soil.
