Graptopetalum superbum 'Beautiful'
Succulent houseplants are popular plants for window sills, brighten desks and other indoor spaces where you can show them off. Great for weddings! Protect from frost.
A succulent that forms up to 5 inches wide, flat, open rosettes. The leaves are fleshy, thick, pale gray-lavender to pink colored and cluster in rosettes at the end of thick stems. Typically this plant remains fairly compact, especially when grown in full sun. They require gritty porous soil with excellent drainage. Water regularly over the summer months letting the soil dry out between waterings. Minimal water is required over winter. Do not over-water. A light misting of water with a spray bottle once or twice a week is adequate for most succulents.
Succulents are FAR more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit “under-full” when they need water.
Dry soil is necessary. Succulents should be potted in a fast-draining mixture that’s designed for cacti and succulents. Modifying basic potting mix with approximately half potting mix to half Perlite or Vermiculite.
Perfect as a houseplant.
