General Care for Echeveria purpusorum
Echeveria purpusorum is small, and grows very slowly. The leaves show more color when exposed to bright light.
This Echeveria is perfect for wedding bouquets or favors, or part of a succulent wreath or garland.
Echeveria purpusorum 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. Be sure not to let water sit on the leaves, and use a well-draining soil. Echeveria tend to attract mealy bugs.
Where to Plant
Echeveria purpusorum 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.
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).
