Echeveria agavoides 'Romeo'

Like most Echeveria, this particular cultivar, being dark red, needs bright light. 

Without it, the color will pale, and the beautiful tight growth habit will suffer. 

Most Echeveria prefer a porous and well drained soil - none of them like to be over saturated with water, which can cause root rot and the death of the plant.

Usually solitary, these plants will pup in time, creating a small colony, not extensive like some varieties.

Propagate by pulling off some of the lower leaves - carefully.  These will root placed on some dry potting soil.  More about succulent plant propagation here.
