Propagating Echeveria Neon Breakers from offsets
Just select an offset to use and then twist and pull one away from the main rosette and let it callus over for a few days. After the offset has callused over you can plant the root from the offset directly into the soil with the offset sitting on top of the soil.
In this way, why is my Echeveria closing up?
Too much sunlight
Stress due to extensive sunlight will trigger the rosettes of your succulents to close up tightly. This is their defense mechanism to protect its leaves from receiving intense light and heat.

How do you care for an Echeveria neon breaker?
Make sure to place your succulent in an area that will receive a good amount of sunlight, but keep in mind to let your plant have a bit of shade or indirect sun to keep its fleshy leaves from burning and scarring. ‘Neon Breakers‘ (PP21406) continues to be an outstanding addition to any succulent garden.
While they appreciate a lot of light (and very few survive in full shade), most succulents need sun protection, especially if the temperature hits the 90-degree-mark, or if they’re small. Varieties that are solid green, pale, or variegated are most in danger of sun burn.
When you’re shopping for a succulent select a plant that has fat, green, pert leaves. This is the easiest way to tell that the succulent you’re picking is healthy. If the leaves are brown, wilted, or drooping, this doesn’t mean the plant will immediately die, but is showing signs that it hasn’t been well cared for.
If your plant’s leaves are starting to look yellow and transparent, and feel soggy or mushy to the touch, it’s likely suffered from overwatering. An early sign of over-watering is that leaves will start to fall off with just a slight bump.
