Description:

This is a wonderful hybrid made by Max Holmes, who named it after the star shape of the rosette and the name of his nursery, in which he generated it for the first time crossing Graptopetalum filiferum and Echeveria cuspidata v. zaragoza. The solitary rosette is compact and robust, reaching a maximum diameter of about 10 cm with its rather thin and curved leaves upwards. The epidermis is of a pale green colour, which fades almost towards white along the margins; in the middle of the delicacy of these tones, the small red tip stands out strongly at the apex of the foliage. In spring, the charm of Graptoveria 'Thornwood star' is accentuated by pretty tubular flowers with shades from pink to light yellow.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sun rays, especially during the hottest hours of the day, as long as they might burn the leaves.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 7 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer and suspend watering completely in winter.

The best soil is a well draining one, so to avoid rotting, for example a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
