Echeveria Purpusorum is one of the many echeverias originating in Mexico. Its leaves are dark green with red spots, although the color of the leaves may change between brown, green, or reddish depending on the amount of light it receives.
This succulent plant grows slowly so it does not usually bloom very often, but when it does it pulls out beautiful orange-red flowers from a long and delicate stem.
Water frequency: Every 10 to 14 days.
Echeverias have typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to allow the moss ball to dry out completely between waterings. Never let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Also, remove dead leaves from the bottom to avoid pests.
Fill a bowl with room temperature water. Place your kokedama in the water, plant side up. Push the moss ball down so that it is fully submerged and begins to absorb water. Allow soaking for 10-25 minutes, or until fully saturated with water.
Note: We use rainwater. If you use tap water, we recommend letting a bucket of water seat outside for at least 8 hours at daylight while the chlorine evaporates.
Light: Full sun, Part Shade
Echeveria needs bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form.
During spring and summer, fertilize your kokedama monthly with a liquid indoor plant fertilizer at 1/2 the recommended concentration. Simply mix the fertilizer into the water and soak as usual.
