Graptopetalum are native to Mexico and southern USA. Their leaves vary in colour from silver-grey to pink to waxy green, and are often speckled. They all have thick leaves forming rosettes with star-shaped flowers from white to pink on long stems. All require lots of sun to look their best.
Summer growers. Graptopetalum require gritty porous soil with excellent draiange. Water regularly over the summer months letting the soil dry out between waterings. Minimal water is required over winter. Fertlise once during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser diluted to ¼ strength. All do best in sun or part sun excluding Graptopetalum bellum which prefers light shade.
