Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Echeveria ‘Lola'
Echeveria ‘Lola' is an easy-to-care-for evergreen succulent that grows happily in containers. It flowers in the Spring and early Summer, and does not hold up well to cold temperatures.
If you live in Zone 9 or below, it's best to only plant this succulent in containers that can be brought indoors once it's cool enough for frost.
Water ‘Lola' using the “soak and dry” method. Be sure that the soil is completely dry after watering to avoid root rot and pests.
Where to Plant
Does well in container gardens and rock gardens.
Echeveria are susceptible to pests, including the dreaded mealy bug. Avoid over-watering, and treat any pests with 70% isopropyl alcohol.
How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Lola'
‘Lola' can be propagated by leaves, cuttings and offsets.
It's possible to propagate ‘Lola' from leaves, however the process can take longer than other succulent leaf propagation.
When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem. This will give you a better chance of a successful propagation.
Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.
To propagate Echeveria ‘Lola' from cuttings, use a sharp, sterile knife or pair of scissors and cut a piece of the plant just above a leaf on the stem. Allow it to dry for a couple of days, and place in well-draining soil.
‘Lola' will propagate on its own, producing offsets that can be removed from the mother plant using a sterile knife or scissors. Allow the offsets a day or two to dry out, and then place on well-draining soil.
