Details about Pachyveria 'Bea' "The little beauty"
General Care for Pachyveria Bea
Pachyveria Bea is a hybrid of two other plants, Pachphytum and Echeveria. The beautiful white veins on the leaves resemble cuts on a gemstone. It is a good succulent plant to grow, especially for beginners. Because this can survive in many environmental and growing conditions.
Pachyveria Bea does not require any special watering methods. Just use the typical succulent watering method. Soak the soil completely, and then wait for some days to dry out completely before watering again. This method will help it develop stronger roots distribution.
In winter, it'll need a little more frequent watering and well-draining soil. Because winter is the active growth season for Pachyveria Bea. But the watering rules still apply here. Just make sure to not water if the soil is still wet.
Keep in mind, it can withstand underwatering but will die soon if overwatered.
Where to Plant Pachyveria Bea
Generally, if you live in a colder environment. I.e. where temperature can go below 20° F (-6° C), you should plant Pachyveria Bea succulent in a container pot. Because it is not cold hardy, and you should be able to bring inside. Because it dies in a colder environment. Otherwise, it is best to plant this succulent in an outdoor garden. Because it'll grow healthier if it gets full sun for 4 to 6 hours a day. Although, the Pachyveria as a whole are light-loving plants but protect them from too much direct sunlight by some shade.
Pachyveria Bea is perfect for the rock garden and it looks gorgeous in a succulents container arrangement.
How to Propagate Pachyveria Bea
Pachyveria Bea can be very easily propagated through its leaves and stem cuttings.
Propagation by Leaves
Propagating by leaves is the recommended method to follow for Pachyveria Bea. Because it works extremely well.
When cutting a leaf for propagation, try to gently cut as a whole. I.e. no part of the leaf should be left on the stem. This will increase your chances of successful propagation.
It also drops leaves by itself from time to time. You can collect those dropped leaves as well to propagate.
After collecting leaves, callous over for a day or two. Then place the leaves on well-draining soil.
Propagation by Stem Cuttings
To propagate by stem cuttings, cut a stem from the main plant. Allow the removed stem to callous over for some days. Then place the stem in well-draining soil. The soil conditions can be poor but should be well-draining. Just remember to give water when the soil is completely dry. I have mentioned that at the last in watering succulents guide.
