Bright Indirect to Direct

The orientation of your window defines where to put your plant so it gets bright indirect to direct sunlight. If your window faces
East or West, put it 0 to 2 ft away.
South, place it between 0 to 5 ft away, as sunlight from the South is the strongest.
Norh facing window wouldn’t provide enough sunlight to this plant.

Did you know that Echeverias go through the process of photosynthesis at night? Plants that do are said to be plants with CAM, (Crassulacean acid metabolism). Consider adding a couple of these to your bedroom to improve the quality of your sleep!

Plant story

The Echeveria plant is part of the succulent family. The Echeveria looks like a rosette formed by its fleshy succulent-specific leaves, creating a unique rose-like look. It is native to the semi-desert regions found in Mexico all the way down to northern Argentina. The genus ‘echeveria’ is named after the 18th-century Spanish botanist Atanasio Echeverria Codoy. The Echeveria is a family of plants often referred to as ‘Hens and Chicks’ because it forms offsets very quickly. It’s the perfect plant to add to your indoor garden, not only because of its easy care nature, but you’ll be able to give its babies to your friends and family in no time.
This particular kind, Echeveria ‘Lola Hort’ leaves are tipped with rose and make coral or pink flowers in the Spring.

Care for your Echeveria Lola like a pro!



To place your plant in the perfect spot, let’s start with understanding how much light it needs and how much light your place gets. To figure this out, you need to find the direction of your window and measure how far the plant is from it. First, using the compass or map on your phone, see what direction your window faces: North, East, West, or South. Here’s what you need to remember:

  1. South-facing windows make for the brightest spots, then East- and West-facing, and then North-facing.
  2. If the window is in between two directions, use the least sunny direction as a base.
  3. Each window has an optimal proximity range. Here’s where to put your Echeveria Lola, based on the direction of your window:
    • not possibl to place in a room with North Window, as not enough sun
    • within 1ft away from East or West window;
    • within 5ft away from South window;

Within this range, the closer your plant is to the window, the more light photons it gets, and the better it thrives.

Note: This is a general guideline. Each place is unique, and you know yours best. Is the window view obstructed by the trees and a highrise? Is there a sheer curtain? If so, less light is coming in. Move your plant closer!

Still not sure if your Echeveria Lola will be thriving in the spot you picked?

Another simple way to define brightness levels is by measuring the intensity of the shadow. That’s particularly helpful if the view is somewhat obstructed and it’s hard to estimate how much light actually sneaks in. Place a sheet of paper on the spot where you’d like to grow a plant. Hold your hand about 1 foot (30cm) above the paper. Now, what do you see?

Echeveria Lola is a LIGHT DRINKER.

Check your plant regularly, but only water it when it’s thirsty.

Every plant needs a period of drying for the oxygen to get to its roots. Overwatering damages your plant by preventing that process from happening. So how can you know how much water your
Echeveria Lola
needs? The ideal watering frequency depends on the plant’s drinking habits and how fast the soil dries out in your unique indoor space, so it would be misleading to recommend a fixed schedule. To best meet your plant’s water needs, monitor it, and watch for the signs it’s thirsty.

Here’s how the how to:

Once a week before giving your plant a drink, check the moisture level in the pot by dipping your finger a couple of inches into the soil.

Light Drinkers
need to be watered when 2’+ of the topsoil is dry.

The dislikes of Your Echeveria Lola When It Comes To Water

  • Your Echeveria Lola doesn’t like it when its roots are left sitting in water. They would start to rot and that would irreversibly damage your plant.

What to do: Make sure you always discard the drenched water from the pot or saucer after watering.


Echeveria Lola comes from a Dry climate. Aim to provide the air conditions it would find in its natural habitat. At all times, maintain a comfortable room temperature of 45-85°F,7-30°C.

Echeveria Lola
is a resilient and adaptable plant. It feels good in normal humidity (30-40%) but also tolerates low humidity (less than 30%), so it’s likely to enjoy your indoor space as it is.


To provide your Echeveria Lola with the right nutrients, fertilize it from March to September.
It’s a LIGHT eater plant. As a rule of thumb, it should be fertilized just twice a year, once in Spring and once in Summer.

Liquid fertilizer with NPK formula 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium) works best for it.

Otherwise, you can use all-purpose indoor plant fertilizer.

Never fertilize your plant during the winter or fall months. It goes through winter dormancy and its appetite naturally slows down.
