Ruby Slipper is a special Echeveria plant from Mexico, known for its velvety, red coating that shields it from the strong sun. It loves sunlight but needs protection from frost. A little stress from direct sun, less water, and cooler weather brings out vibrant red hues. Whether in a pot or in the ground, it's easy to care for with good drainage and plenty of sun. In winter, it blooms with tall stems bearing orange, bell-shaped flowers.

- Origin: Mexico
- Climate Zone: 10
- Hardiness: Tender soft succulent - susceptible to damage from frost
- Preferred Light: Filtered light
- Bloomtime: Summer
- Bloom Color: Orange

Watering Indoors: Instead of providing your succulents with frequent sips of water, it's better to give them a thorough soaking until water drains out from the pot's drainage holes. Ensure to remove any excess water in the saucer, as succulents dislike sitting in standing water. Allow the soil to completely dry out before watering again.

Watering Outdoors: During summer, water your succulents every two weeks, soaking them and letting the soil dry before watering again. In winter, water them once a month.

Technical Plant Information:

- Light Requirements: Requires bright light for most of the day or consistent dappled shade.
- Watering Schedule: Best to water every two weeks.
