How to Care for Echeveria Marrom

Caring for your Echeveria Marrom is simple. You can read the full guide on caring for succulents indoors or review the basics below.

Watering Needs

Echeveria Marrom is a succulent and therefore does not need frequent waterings. It is best to water succulents no more than once a week, ensuring the soil is completely dry in between watering. Over-watering can lead to root rot, so be sure to err on the side of caution.

Sunlight Needs

Echeveria Marrom grows best in full sun but can also tolerate partial sun. If you live in an area with very hot summers, it is best to provide some afternoon shade for your plant.

Soil Needs

Echeveria Marrom prefers well-drained soil. You can purchase a cactus/succulent potting mix or make your own.

Propagation Methods

Echeveria Marrom can be propagated by offsets, stem, or leaf cuttings.


Offsets are small plantlets that form at the base of the mother plant. To propagate by offsets, simply remove the offset from the mother plant, allow to callous, and pot it in a breathable planter.

Leaf Cuttings

Leaf cuttings can be taken from most succulents, including Echeveria Marrom. To propagate by leaf cuttings, gently twist and pull a leaf from the mother plant, allow to callous, and plant it in well-drained soil.

Stem Cuttings

Echeveria Marrom can also be propagated by stem cuttings. To propagate by stem cuttings, simply remove a stem from the mother plant and pot it in well-drained soil. Remove any loose leaves and watch new babies grow over time.

Common Problems with Echeveria Succulents

Echeveria Marrom is a relatively low-maintenance succulent, but there are a few things to watch out for.

Root Rot

One of the most common problems with Echeveria (and most succulents) is root rot. Root rot is caused by too much water and can quickly kill your plant. If you think your plant has root rot, the best course of action is to remove it from the pot and allow the roots to dry out. Once the roots are dry, you can repot it in fresh, well-drained soil.


Echeveria Marrom isn’t overly susceptible to pests, but occasionally mealybugs or aphids can become a problem. If you see any pests on your plant, you can remove them with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol or spray it with an organic pesticide.

Echeveria Marrom is resistant to most diseases, but one to watch out for is powdery mildew. Powdery mildew is a white powder that forms in patches on the leaves of succulents. It is caused by too much moisture in the air. If you see powdery mildew on your plant, be sure to provide good air circulation and avoid watering the leaves. You can treat it with rubbing alcohol.
