Detail
Graptopetalum superbum is a succulent that forms flat, open and up to 5 inches (12.5 cm) wide rosettes. The leaves are fleshy, thick, pale gray-lavender to pink and cluster in rosettes at the end of thick stems. Old plants have been noted with stems up to 7 feet (2.1 m) but more typically this plant remains fairly compact, especially when grown in full sun. In late winter to early spring arise up to 2 foot (60 cm) tall, open, multiple-branched inflorescences, holding dainty flowers with pale yellow petals with red markings on the tips and with red sigma lobes and stamens.

Growing Conditions

The rules for Graptopetalums care are similar to those for most succulents. Container-bound plants thrive in a mixture of peat, sand or other grit, topsoil and a little bit of compost. Full sun is the best situation but they will also grow in partial sun with slightly rangy results.

Graptopetalums need excellent drainage and moderate water. You can tell when to water by sticking your finger in the soil. If it is dry several inches down or the fleshy leaves are looking shriveled, you should water. Overwatering is a cause of root rots and the plant can get several pest infestations.

It was in a combo pot. The rest died so that explains why it's off centre.
