Graptoveria are a favorite variety amongst houseplant enthusiasts and succulent collectors. Known for their vivid colors and compact, perfectly formed rosettes, this succulent hybrid makes a great talking piece in any houseplant or terrarium display.
Interestingly, the coloring of the leaves on Graptoveria succulents is achieved by providing a ‘stressed’ environment where watering is limited, temperatures are adjusted and light exposure is increased. Originating from a combination of Echeveria and Graptopetalum succulents, the Graptoveria is a hybrid cross and is distinguishable by its waxy leaves and rosette appearance.
All Graptoveria succulent varieties need full sunlight to ensure the best chances of achieving that vivid sort-after admirable colors. Provide partial shade when the weather is very hot to avoid sunburn and scorched leaves. The rosettes of a well-cared-for plant of the Graptoveria succulent variety will grow between 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
As is the case with most other succulents, Graptoveria plants prefer dry roots and low levels of humidity rather than to be kept in damp soil. The key is giving them a thorough drowning with your watering can when needed and then also exposing them to a dry period to allow roots to grow and get the oxygen they need to thrive. Water thoroughly but infrequently and always ensure that the soil is completely dry before watering again. Graptoveria is non-toxic to pets and humans.
