Echeveria 'Afterglow’ is a beautiful and vigorous succulent with wide, powdery pinkish-lavender leaves that have a red or even brighter pink neon edging. The colors shift based on the amount of sun and temperature. It grows on a short stem that holds up to 16 inch (40 cm) wide rosettes. The deep orange-red flowers can emerge from below lower leaves or sometimes as a terminal inflorescence. Would make a great centerpiece in arrangements, bridal bouquets, or succulent gardens.
☀️Light: Morning sun and afternoon shade is best.
💧Water: Water only when soil is completely dry, and then wait a few days after that!
🍼Food: Fertilize with 1/2 strength liquid fertilizer during growing season.
Ideally, Echeveria prefer at least 2-5 hours of direct or filtered morning sunlight with bright indirect sunlight throughout the day to maintain their compact rosettes and vivid colors. They will not survive a hard frost, but can be brought indoors to grow near a window sill receiving bright sunlight or under a grow light.
Like most succulents, they require well-draining soil and infrequent watering. Our plants are shipped bare-root so please prepare a pot, ideally with drainage holes, and fill with a well-draining cactus and succulent soil.
