Fertilizer/ feed for the plant: Good news! The Echeveria Pegasus plant doesn’t really need feeding. But if you still notice that it needs a pick-me-up, opt for a liquid fertilizer once in 3 to 4 weeks.
Repotting : Succulents like to be left alone and you need to repot the Echeveria plant only when necessary. While repotting, change the soil completely, ensure to shake most of the old soil from the roots, use a succulent potting mix, and a planter that is not very big compared to the old planter.
Propagation : The Pegasus plant will happily propagate from leaf cuttings and also via pups that spring up around the mother plant. Place a single leaf on top of a cacti mix and keep it in a well-lit spot till a new succulent sprouts up, water to keep the top soil moist.
