Echeveria Runyonii life habits

Echeveria runyonii grew at a suitable temperature of 16-19℃, and the overwintering temperature should not be lower than 5℃.Illumination is fond of illumination, it is also tolerant to semi-shade environment, and it is necessary to pay attention to shading protection when the temperature is high in summer. 

Echeveria Runyonii distribution range

Echeveria Runyonii was originally fertilized in Mexico, once a month during the growing period.

It is resistant to drought, the growing period to increase the number of watering, winter to keep wet.

After 1-2 days of airing, the leaves can be spread flat or inserted into the medium in a shallow way. In about 10 days, small buds and new roots will grow at the base of the leaves.· Plant separation and propagation: combined with turning the basin to cut tiller buds with rooting at the base, dry the wound and plant it again

Notes for breeding Echeveria Runyonii

The bottom of the echeveria runyonii (Echeveria Topsy Turvy) plant develops lateral buds very easily.Generally, when the lateral bud produces 4 ~ 6 leaves, it can be cut out and cultivated separately, so as to avoid overcrowding and damage the shape of the mother plant.Echeveria Runyonii likes sunny, warm and dry environment, lack of light leaves will be thin, appear not full. If you want to keep a tight full plant, you can take full sunshine.There will be brief dormancy in summer, so pay attention to proper water supply and shade.
