Graptopetalum Mendozae is an attractive spreading succulent that will grow up to 15cm tall.
They are perennial and native to Mexico and Arizona.
Their leaves vary in colour from silver-grey to pink to waxy green, and are often speckled. They all have thick leaves forming rosettes with star-shaped flowers from white to pink on long stems. They require lots of sun to look their best.
Graptopetalum Mendozae require a porous soil with excellent drainage. Water regularly over the summer months letting the soil dry out before watering again. Minimal water is required over winter. Overwatering will cause root rot.
Any rosette that breaks off has the potential to root and start a new plant. Even a leaf that drops off will root below the parent plant and produce a new rosette quickly. The new plant feeds off the leaf until it shrivels up and falls off. By then the new little plant has rooted and sprouted new leaves.
Very attractive in pots alone or as a mixed planting. Very popular with children and often called ‘a bunch of grapes” A great gift idea alone in a cup or decor pot, or as part of a terrarium.
