Why is my succulent fuzzy?
The tiny hairs that make up the ‘fuzz’ can be damaged, leaving the plant exposed to direct sunlight where it can be burned. So if you have fuzzy leaved succulents, water with ‘tempered’ water only, and use rainwater or water from an air conditioner. This will make sure that it has no minerals in.

As always, slowly acclimate to a full sun situation. Sources indicate the plant can maintain in shade. Keep Doris Taylor in afternoon shade in the hottest days of summer. More water is needed during the growing season; however, waterings should still be infrequent.
Echeveria ‘Dusty Rose’ is one of the purple succulents that form fast-growing rosettes of wide, powdery violet leaves. The beautiful color of these succulents only gets better with more sunlight!
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
