Graptoveria "Bashful"

To 5"

Hardy to Zone 10 (30F)

Part Sun


Named “bashful” because its flowers grow so close to the ground, this Graptoveria forms a dense rosette with fleshy pink-tipped leaves which turn a vibrant red when stressed.

Like many succulents, Graptoveria needs bright sunlight to maintain their colors and compact rosette form. If they recieve too little sunlight, the plants will stretch and the colors will fade. They will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. Graptoveria produce new offsets around the base of the mother plant which can be left to form a tidy cluster or removed and transplanted. Additionally, they can be propagated from stem cuttings or from mature leaves.
