Symbolism. Echeveria does not have any official meaning. But in view of its tough nature, we think the plant represents persistence and strength, making it a nice gesture for someone who is going through a difficult time.
A general rule of thumb is to repot succulents every two-years, at least as a way to provide fresh fertile soil. The best time to repot is at the beginning of a succulent’s growing season – this gives the plant the highest chance of survival.
Find offshoots or pups to be removed. Once an offshoot or a pup has grown large enough or has started producing roots, they can be removed from the mother plant. Try to get some roots when removing the pup.
They need to be kept moist and warm. Within three weeks or so, little roots and leaves will begin to sprout! It could take a few months before a succulent gets big enough for repotting (photos above are after about 8 weeks). You’ll know it’s time when the leaf eventually turns brown and falls off.
