Thank you! Can't wait to see those flowers! They look like candy corn.

Ugh, it's not doing well. It's potted in gritty mix in full sun. It was acclimated. I came back from vacation a week and a half ago and it looked like this. Ionly water maybe once a week unless it rains with foliage pro at half to a quarter strength. Any ideas?

Echeveria setose ciliiata is sensitive to water on its leaves, can you put it in a shaded area, I had one for a week before it got killed in a downpour


 o
RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

I can do that. Thanks so much!

RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

Am I protecting it just from water on the leaves or from full sun too?


 o
RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

Laura, I have mine in full sun all summer long and water from time to time when I remember and don't care if leaves get wet. From your picture, I can't tell that there is much wrong. You an always dump the pot and inspect the roots. Just some thoughts.

RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

This is what I see...most original roots seemed to have died off, but it's growing new roots. It would seem to me to trim back all the dead (black) roots, trim back the older, unhealthy leaves and pot back up dry. I'm thinking due to the root die-off, there wasn't enough of a root system to support the leaves it has. Does that sound right?

Note: I bought this plant and potted it up right before the original post on June 25th.

Laura, I would remove, carefully, any dead material. The roots that are dead usulaly come off easily. Then re-pot and water but don't soak. Maybe keep it protected from the sun for awhile until those new roots can support the plant.... good growing!

RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

Thanks for all the advice. Glad I unpotted it. The white roots give me some hope that it's going to survive.


 o
RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

Trim off the dead and repot. Normally Id say allow to dry on newspaper for a few days but I see healthy white roots there. You may use moist soil but I wouldnt give any water until its recovered.


 o
RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

Hey all...an update. I trimmed off the dead roots and dying leaves and repotted one size down. It's made a nice recovery. Thanks for all the advice!


 o
RE: Echeveria Ciliata?

Looks like some new growth... good for you!
