To maintain the distinctive color of ‘Vera Higgins,’ ensure that your plant receives bright light with adequate airflow. Well-draining soil mix is a must to avoid rot, and plants should be watered when the soil feels dry to the touch or when the leaves begin to show signs of wrinkling.
In this regard, how do you propagate Graptosedum Vera Higgins?
Graptosedum can be easily propagated by stem and leaf cuttings. To take leaf cuttings, just pull or twist them off the stem. Be gentle though! If part of the leaf is left behind, it may not grow.

How do you propagate Vera Higgins?
Graptosedum plant care is simple. Pot up your California Sunset into fast-draining succulent soil that you’ve amended with coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Pot into moist soil, if you like. Potting into moist soil is a common practice with traditional plants, but not so much with succulents.
Most succulents will grow “leggy” if they don’t get enough light. But those succulents that change colors when stressed are usually more light sensitive than others. Their reaction can be quick, putting out etiolated “growth” in a mere few days.
Echeveria ‘Black Prince’ do best in areas that receive plenty of bright, filtered sunlight. Place in a bright sunny location outdoors. They can tolerate partial sun to full sun, but need to be acclimated to full sun to prevent sun damage.
The best way to water this plant is to use the “soak and dry” method. Get the soil completely wet and then wait until the soil is dry before watering again. Fertilize annually with a balanced fertilizer. Apply the fertilizer to the soil in spring as new growth appears, according to package directions.
Sedum adolphi (golden sedum) is an incredibly versatile rangy color accent in succulent landscapes, borders and along pathways, or for spilling forth out of planters. Star-shaped white flowers add winsome contrast to the greenish-yellow leaf color, which sparkles golden orange in strong light.
As with all Echeverias, Subsessilis likes infrequent watering and prefers dry conditions after the plant becomes established. Do not overwater! After watering, allow the soil moisture to dry completely before watering again. Once per week should be adequate.
