Echeveria 'Dark Moon' PP28685

Size

Sporting nearly black coloration on its thick, powdery leaves, the 6-inch rosettes of Echeveria ‘Dark Moon’ also include tones of deep blue and purple, making for an eye-catching succulent that creates the perfect contrast to lighter hued varieties when included in arrangements or rock gardens.

Like most richly colored Echeveria, ‘Dark Moon’ requires very bright light to maintain its coloration – in fact, the brighter the sun exposure, the deeper its colors will be! Beyond this requirement, its needs are simple, and revolve primarily around avoiding excess moisture around the roots and leaves. As such, be sure to provide this variety with very porous soil in a well-draining pot, coupled with ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface. Water deeply but infrequently, giving the soil the opportunity to completely dry between waterings. Furthermore, take care not to pour water directly over or into the rosette, where it can become trapped and lead to issues with rot and pests.

During the winter months, be sure to shield this tender succulent from frosty temperatures – and as the weather begins to warm in the spring and summer, prepare for a display of red blooms, providing a vibrant contrast to the nearly black rosettes.
