Environment

Moonstones can thrive in full or partial sunlight. As with most Crassulaceae , Pachyphytum can tolerate poor soil conditions, so long as it is well draining.

Allow the soil to dry out before watering, and be careful to avoid getting water on the leaves. In winter, the plants will require more water, as winter begins its active growth season. If you are unsure when to water your Pachyphytum, watch the lower most leaves for signs of drying and water them then. Pachyphytum is far more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit under-full when they need water.

Description

Pachyphytum oviferum is a prostrate succulent plant up to 4 inches tall and up to 12 inches wide with white stems bearing pale blue-green to bluish-purple rounded leaves in a rosette at the stems tips. The flowers, which appear in winter to early spring atop reddish 1 foot long stems, have red-orange petals surrounded by fleshy sepals the same color as the foliage

Landscape Use

Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
