Breeding methods and precautions of Echeveria Meridian

Sandy soil is the best way to keep the Echeveria Meridian, and the soil has a good drainage capacity. The moisture need in the growing period is not very much, water once a week goes. In winter we should spray water to protect wet. Temperature: 18-25℃ is the best temperature for its growth, and the temperature should not exceed 35℃.Light: It likes the sun. When it is raised, it should be exposed to enough light. Lack of light will make its color fade.

Maintenance method of Echeveria Meridian

  • 1. Soil: The Echeveria Meridian will grow better in sandy soil. Mix sand and peat with a little leaf rot. Soil nutrients and drainage are good. Choose coarser sand.
  • 2. Watering: Echeveria Meridian needs very little water, even in the growing period, once a week is enough. Water it twice throughout the winter. When the air is dry, spray it around the pot to moisturize.
  • 3. Temperature: The optimum temperature for Echeveria Meridian to grow is 18-25℃. It should be noted that it will stop growing in summer if the temperature exceeds 35℃. So when it's hot in the summer, it's best to move to a cooler place.
  • 4. Light: Echeveria Meridian has a large demand for light, so we should try to make it receive enough light when breeding. If there is no light, the color will become lighter, which is very ugly.

Breeding skills of Echeveria Meridian

  • 1. Propagation: Cutting propagation is easier, cutting leaves with good quality and placing Echeveria Meridian on the soil surface after 1-2 days of drying.Spray water as much as possible to keep the soil moist. It will soon take root, and as the new shoots grow, they will be ready to be planted.
  • 2. Changing pots: The Echeveria Meridian usually does not need to be changed. If it grows up and the space in the old pot, it is not suitable for his growth. It can be changed to a larger pot for breeding. Be careful with the roots when changing the basin, and after a day of drying, return to the basin.

Problem diagnosis and treatment of Propagating Echeveria Meridian

  • 1. Dry: if the base of the plant leaves dry, belonging to the normal situation, do not need to deal with it. If too many leaves are withered, it may be caused by a lack of water and light, so water should be replenished in time and transferred to a position with good light for curing.
  • 2. Black rot: it is mostly caused by Fusarium oxysporum. If found early, remove the diseased leaves or cut off the diseased parts without feeling sorry for yourself. Black rot develops very quickly, and missing a few leaves can lead to a whole bead being affected, and spraying antimicrobial agents in a ventilated place for breeding.
