Why is my Echeveria Agavoides turning black?
It seems to be rotting. Even if your pot has drainage holes, if the plant is in water-retaining soil, it will still rot. To be frank, it looks quite bad and the only way to save it is to take it out of pot; clean up all rotting matter and see what is left.
Does Echeveria need sun?
Light is where many succulent gardeners fall short of the needs of their plants. It is critical that you place your echeveria in a window where it will receive a minimum of six hours of sunlight per day. Without extended, direct light, your plant will begin to stretch and lose its attractive, compact form.
How often should I water Echeveria Agavoides?
Echeverias like full sun, bright shade, and well-drained soil. Water them when the soil is dry; they often can go anywhere from 2-12 weeks without water once established. Generally, they’re grown from leaf and stem cuttings and offsets, not seeds.
