Graptopetalum 'Murasaki' (O'Connell): A gorgeous pastel rosette of bubblegum pink. This variety has a powdery coating of natural wax that protects it in full sun and give it a soft, pastel look. It resembles its parent plant, G. superbum, but has more rounded, upright foliage.
Soft succulents 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.
- They need bright sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot.
- This variety is easy to re-root from mature leaves and stem cuttings.
- Has more rounded, upright foliage.
Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
