General Care for Echeveria ‘Ruffles'
Echeveria ‘Ruffles' is a great addition to rock gardens and succulent arrangements. It is deer and drought resistant.
Echeveria ‘Ruffles' 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 ‘Ruffles' 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 and grown under a grow light. It does well in full to partial sun.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day.
How to Propagate Echeveria ‘Ruffles'
Echeveria ‘Ruffles' can be propagated from cuttings and leaves.
To grow ‘Ruffles' from cuttings, 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.
To propagate ‘Ruffles' 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.
