Graptopetalum paraguayense

“The Ghost Plant”

Supplied in a 9cm pot


Graptopetalum paraguayense known as the ‘Ghost Plant’, is one of the hardiest succulents in the Crassulaceae family and is known to grow well outside in frost free areas of Cornwall.

The main feature of G. paraguayense is the beautiful lilac coloured leaves, which carry a silvery- grey powdery coating. The leaves are carried in a rosette on the end of trailing stems up to 30cm long. Flowering is normally in spring on a 10cm stem, with small white star shaped flowers flushed with pink.

This is a very easy succulent to grow and is the perfect ‘beginners’ plant. Grow in very free draining cactus compost, feed in summer with our cactus and succulent fertiliser and keep dry throughout winter. Best given greenhouse protection when temperatures dip below 0℃.
