The rules for Graptopetalum care are similar to those for most succulents. All require lots of sunlight to look their best. They require gritty, porous soil with excellent drainage. Water regularly over the summer months and let the soil dry out between waterings.
Accordingly, how do I identify Lavender Pebbles?
Lavender Pebbles is related to Jade Plant and Echeveria (Crassulaceae family). The “chubby” leaves are rounded at the tip, instead of pointy like many related succulents. The lavender or rose shades appear strongest in the newer leaves, while the older growth becomes more greenish.
Likewise, people ask, how do you propagate lavender Pebbles?
How To Propagate Lavender Pebbles
- Cut off stem or rosette and plant it in a well-draining soil mixture.
- Take the succulent cuttings and put them on a fast-draining soil, under a shady area.
- Sprinkle some water on the leaves regularly.
- Once the leaves start getting roots, spray more quantity of water frequently.
How do you care for a moonstone succulent?
Make sure to keep your plant in a sunny place where it gets enough sunlight. Water the in-container Pachyphytum Oviferum only when you feel it soil dry to a depth of 4 inches. Avoid watering it when the soil still feels moist or else your fragile succulent will be damaged.
Place your clippings and leaves, cut ends up, on a dish filled with fast-draining soil facing indirect sunlight. Leave for about three days or until the ends callus over. Once that happens, use a spray bottle to squirt everything five to six times until the soil is moist but not soaked.
- Cut a young leaf from the center of the rosette.
- Allow it some time for the cut part to callous – usually, a day is enough.
- Place the leaf into a slightly moist well-draining potting mix.
- Wait until a new rosette forms and repot the new rosette after enough roots have developed.
Ghost plant (Graptopetalum paraguayense) is a cold-hardy succulent with pale gray or whitish leaves on sprawling stems. Its versatile growth will help it stand out in your landscape as an unusual groundcover, cascading down a container, or even as a houseplant.
The common name ghost plant probably has to do with the look of the grayish white, opalescent leaves. The plants come not from Paraguay, as the species name implies, but Mexico. Graptopetalum rosettes resemble echeverias, to which they are related.
The simple solution is to move the plant to a southern exposure. But this still leaves that leggy party. Fortunately, leggy succulent plants can be topped, removing the part that is too tall and allowing new shoots to form and develop into a more compact plant.
