Graptosedum origins are uncertain. This succulent is a hybrid between 2 genera: Graptoveria, from which it took its beautiful colors, and Sedum, from which it took the typical shape of the leaves. It grows, forming many compact rosettes, up to 13 cm in diameter, geometrically exact, which develop on the long and falling stems. The flowering period is quite long (from late spring to almost early winter), when small, mainly yellow and white flowers appear on a very long stem. Graptosedum peculiarity is that it takes on a pink color, when exposed to the sun, while it becomes more bluish in shade. This succulent is very resistant, it is perfect for gardens and balconies, where it can show all its beauty with its ornamental colors. Here are some tips for its cultivation: It requires a lot of light throughout the year, avoid direct sun rays during the hottest hours of the day, because they might burn the leaves. It prefers mild temperatures. It survives even at temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry. Water moderately only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once every two months in autumn. Suspend it completely in winter. The best soil is a well draining one, to avoid rotting, for example a mixture of peat and pumice so the water doesn’t stagnate. They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
