The rainbow succulents are actually derived form of Echeveria “Perle Von Nurnberg.”

As for the cultivation itself, succulents are not at all demanding. They will thrive well in a bright and slightly darker place in the home, as well as in direct sunlight on the balcony. Whichever way you choose to grow them, one thing is for sure – even if you are gardening beginner you can grow succulents. Although they tolerate drought well, they should be watered more often in summer than in winter. It is important to make sure that you start watering only when you notice that the soil in which they grow is completely dry. Otherwise, the roots of this plant will rot and the plant will decay.
Another thing you should do is always remove any dead leaves from the plant. This way you will give your succulent more room for new leaves. You can also re-pot it if the succulent becomes too big. So, if you choose to do this, make sure you removed all of the dead and rotted roots. What you need to do is take the new pot, fill it with dry soil (very important), then transfer your rainbow succulent. Moreover, after one week start to water it lightly to avoid unnecessary rotting roots.
