Description
Echeveria affinis is evergreen, low-growing, perennial succulent, up to 8 inches (20 cm) tall and wide. The levaes are fleshy, olive-brownish, up to 2 inches (5 cm) long and up to 0.8 inch (2 cm) wide, formed on rosettes. The red star-shaped flowers sprout on a stem during the summer.
How to Grow and Care
Most of the 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 Echeveria 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.
