How to Grow and Care

Most common Echeveria species are not complicated succulents to grow, provided you follow a few basic rules. First, be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests, and Echeverias are susceptible to mealy bugs. As with all succulents, careful watering habits and plenty of light will help ensure success.

Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide.

Most Echeverias can be easily propagated from leaf cuttings, although a few are better from seeds or stem cuttings. To propagate a leaf cutting, place the individual leaf in potting soil for succulents and cover the dish until the new plant sprouts.

Echeveria Agavoides

Echeveria agavoides is an eye-catching succulent that blooms lantern-shaped, red flowers with yellow-colored tips during the spring and early summer. The succulent is also characterized by a rosette of thick leaves that have a triangular shape.

Its species-name, “agavoides” was attributed to the shape of its leaves which have a small spine on its back similar to those of an Agave plant.

The succulent’s leaves have a lime-green color that greatly contrasts with its red edges giving it a mesmerizing look and the nickname, “Lipstick”. Other popular names are “Wax Agave”, “Molded Wax Echeveria”, “House Leeks”, and “Crested Molded Wax Agave”.

There is another cultivar of this same species that have brown edges and is distinguished by the nickname “Ebony”.

Lipstick can grow up to 6-inches (15cm) tall and 6 to 12-inches (20-30cm) wide. It belongs to the Crassulaceae family and is native to Mexico.
