Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Echeveria ‘Etna’

‘Etna’ is a great addition to rock gardens. The single rosette grows wide, so it’s best not to plant in an arrangement with ground-cover succulents. ‘Etna’ is an Echeveria gibbiflora hybrid. Its flowers are orange and yellow, blooming in the Summer.

Watering

Echeveria ‘Etna’ 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

‘Etna’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.

Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If 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 ‘Etna’

Echeveria ‘Etna’ can be propagated by beheading a mature rosette. Use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.

The original stem will grow a new rosette.

Additional Information

‘Etna’ is named for Mount Etna, an active volcano in Italy.
