Pachyveria 'Glauca' (aka Little Jewel) is a beautiful succulent that forms spikey rosettes resembling a jewel. Leaves are thick and almost cylindrical. They are silvery-blue tipped with red and have a thick coating of farina that gives the plant a soft powdery appearance. Flowers are pinkish on the outside and peach-colored inside.
As with most succulents from the Crassulaceae family, Pachyphytum can tolerate (and even appreciated) poor soil conditions so long as it is well-draining. It can thrive in full or partial sunlight.
Allow the soil to dry out before watering, and avoid getting water on the leaves. The plants will require more water in winter as they begin their active growth season. If you are unsure when to water your plant, watch the lowermost leaves for drying signs and water them then. Pachyphytum is far more likely to survive under-watering than overwatering. The thick, fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit "under-full" when they need water.
