Germination of

Echeveria setosa f. minor

Frosted and Fuzzy Echeveria: Echeveria setosa, Mexican Firecracker, Firecracker Plant

Echeveria setosa f. minor

To germinate Echeveria setosa f. minor seeds, sow them in a well-draining potting mix and cover lightly with soil. Keep the soil moist and place in a warm, bright location. Germination can take up to 2 weeks. Once the seedlings have grown several sets of leaves, they can be transplanted into individual containers.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
