Echeveria type succulents are well-known for their rosette shape and beautiful coloring. They are easy to care for and drought tolerant. Most important is knowing when to water your plants. You'll water moderately, but allow the soil to dry to the touch before watering again. Be sure to keep your Echeveria in well-draining containers. These plants already store water in their leaves. They'll begin to shrivel if their water storage is low or you may find them to be soft and squishy if given too much water. Echeveria grow best in bright light. You'll notice they'll begin to stretch, reaching for light if they aren't getting enough.
