Maintenance

Remove dead leaves at the bottom of the plant to maintain its appearance and allow it to grow healthy. Pests can also use the dead leaves as a hiding place. Echeveria succulents are susceptible to mealy bugs. Make sure to be careful in watering and expose it to enough sunlight every day.

Propagation

Echeveria Purple Pearl is easy to propagate. You can propagate it by using seeds, leaves, and stem cuttings. When propagating using a leaf, make sure to remove it gently from the parent plant. Choose a fleshy leaf so it can produce roots after a few weeks. Allow it to dry first before placing it on top of a succulent/cactus soil mix and cover it with plastic until the new plant has grown. Allow the roots of the new plant to be established so that it will grow healthy before transferring it in a different container with succulent potting soil.

Repotting

Repot the Echeveria Purple Pearl Succulent during early spring or summer time. Check if the soil is dry before repotting the plant. Remove the old succulent/cactus soil mix from the roots and remove any rotten or dead roots. Inspect for any pests that hide in the roots to prevent an infestation from spreading to other plants.

If the succulent has any cuts, treat it with a fungicide. Use a new potting soil and make sure to use a container with drainage holes. Rejuvenate the plant every 3-4 years during early springtime; you can clip or cut out dry stems and old leaves and repot any offsets in a different container using a succulent potting mix.

Uses

The Echeveria Purple Pearl can be used in floral arrangements, wedding bouquets, and containers. This succulent can be placed in patios and planted in pots or terracotta containers. It can also be mixed with perennial plants in beds and borders. You can also add it in an indoor succulent garden and plant it in a 4-6 inches container. It is an ideal houseplant; you can place it at a windowsill so it can get enough sunlight exposure daily.
