Yep. On rare occasion, echeveria will throw out a terminal inflorescence (flower stalk) from the very very center of the plant. When this happens, the echeveria will die after flowering.
Just so, how do you propagate Eoneveria Dionysos?
Most Echeverias can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings, although a few are better from seeds or stem cuttings. To propagate a leaf cutting, place the individual leaf in potting soil for succulents and cover the dish until the new plant sprouts.
Keeping this in view, what does it mean when a succulent flowers?
Blooming is a normal part of the growing cycle for Echeverias. Some succulents only bloom once in their lifetime though, and in this case, a bloom means the mother plant is finished growing and will die after blooming.
How long do Echeveria flowers last?
They start from the end closest to the plant, over about two weeks to give a long lasting display for you to enjoy. There will be buds at one end of the stalk, waiting to open, while the older ones are drying out.
Sadly, some succulents are monocarpic and exist only to flower one time. Cold-hardy sempervivum and the beautiful aeonium, for instance, die after producing their first bloom. Before flowering, though, they‘ll produce babies that continue their line.
Echeveria purpusorum can be propagated by 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.
Echeveria ‘Dionysos‘ can be quite beautiful when it is well-taken care of. This succulent type needs typical watering as the other succulents. The watering method is very important to keep your Dionysos healthy. It should not sit on the water, and an excess amount of water should be avoided.
They can range in size from a couple of inches tall to up to 12 inches tall depending on the variety. Thanks to their ease of care, Echeverias have grown in popularity amongst gardeners and house plant enthusiasts alike.
Try to adjust houseplant and outdoor succulents to half a day of morning sun. This helps the plant to chemically create what it needs to produce blooms and is a long-term process. Open and stretched growth on plants that should be compact shows they are not getting enough sun.
Succulent plants often need pruning just like any other kind of garden favorites, for size control, to shape them better, or to propagate them for more plants. And though most succulents can seal off damaged parts, it is always good to quickly remove broken, diseased, or dead leaves, stems and flower stalks.

Adding succulents and cacti to your home, help keep your fresh air and remove toxins from the environment. Plants absorb our respiratory waste (carbon dioxide), and they convert it into plant carbohydrates to build strong bodies that in turn create pure, clean, life-empowering oxygen for us to breathe.
