When breeding Echeveria 'Meridian', we should provide 1:1 peat soil and coarse sand drainage soil to ensure a warm growing environment of 18 ~ 25℃, water every 7 days or so, avoid leaf splashing, fertilize once a week, and receive more than 7 hours of astigmatism for vigorous growth. We still can undertake to its sow, cent plant or cutting, make its take root and germinate.
Echeveria 'Meridian' has a high demand for soil, so loose sand with good drainage performance should be selected to avoid the occurrence of stagnant water caused by poor drainage, thus causing poor root growth.The common peat soil can be mixed with the porous and drainage coarse sand in an equal ratio, and then the proper amount of bone powder is added to make it fertile.
Maintain the growth environment of the Echeveria 'Meridian' to be warm and comfortable. It is better to keep the temperature around 18 ~ 25 ° C to avoid low temperatures below 10 ° C in winter and above 30 ° C in summer. In this way, the growth of the Echeveria 'Meridian' will not be good and healthy due to temperature discomfort.
In Echeveria 'Meridian' how to feed to pay attention to its low water demand, generally 7 days or so for the Echeveria 'Meridian' watering can replenish water to make its normal growth, usually spraying water to avoid spraying on the leaves, but also for its monthly fertilizer, mainly phosphorus and potash fertilizer to make its nutrients sufficient.
The light-liking Echeveria 'Meridian' was placed in a sunny position, allowing it to receive more than 7 hours of sunlight, resulting in better growth, more compact plant shape and showy leaves, and a better ornamental value. But do not make it exposed to strong light, so as not to cause it to wither and die.
During curing the Echeveria 'Meridian', seeds should be seeded, cuttaged and propagated separately. During sowing, seeds should be covered with thin soil and germinate in 15 ~ 20 days after keeping the appropriate temperature of 16 ~ 19℃.Or separate the young plants and plant them directly in a pot; You can also cut the leaves to dry the wound and lay them flat on the sand for rooting.
