Graptoveria Care Guide

Graptoveria Care Guide

The Graptoveria genus is a hybrid cross between Graptopetalum and Echeveria. Graptoveria plants inherit characteristics from both parent genera, resulting in a range of leaf shapes, colours, and forms. Graptoveria plants often have the rosette form of Echeveria with the leaf colour and texture of Graptopetalum.

Graptoveria comes in a range of shapes, sizes, and colours, with some varieties displaying a stunning mix of green, blue, pink, purple, and even orange hues. The diversity in their appearance allows for numerous aesthetic possibilities in gardening and decoration. Like Echeverias, many Graptoverias form attractive rosettes with plump, fleshy leaves arranged in a symmetrical pattern.

Graptoveria, like most succulents, are low-maintenance plants that are well-suited to a variety of environments. They require minimal watering, can tolerate some neglect, and are generally resilient to pests and diseases. They can be grown both indoors and outdoors, in containers or in-ground gardens, making them versatile additions to any space.

General Care

1. Light

Graptoverias prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. If you're growing Graptoverias indoors, place them near a south or east-facing window.

2. Water

Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. When you do water, water the soil thoroughly and allow any excess water to drain out of the pot. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as this can lead to rot.

3. Soil

Echeveria requires a well-draining soil mix. You can use a commercial cactus or succulent mix combined with perlite, sand or other gritty mixes. The common ratio is 50% soil, and 50% gritty mix.

4. Temperature

Graptoverias prefer temperatures between 15-27°C (60-80°F). They can tolerate higher temperatures, but may go dormant in extreme heat. Protect them from frost and freezing temperatures.

5. Fertilizing

Graptoverias do not require a lot of fertilizer. You can feed them with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).

6. Pruning

You can prune Graptoverias to remove dead or damaged leaves and to shape the plant.

7. Propagation

Graptoverias can be propagated from leaf cuttings, offsets (baby plants that grow at the base of the parent plant), or seeds.


Graptoveria succulents are not known to be toxic to humans or pets. However, it's always a good practice to keep any plant out of reach of pets and small children to prevent accidental ingestion. If you suspect your pet has ingested any part of a Graptoveria plant, it's best to contact your veterinarian.


Graptoveria succulents, like other succulent plants, can produce flowers. The blooming process depends on the specific variety of Graptoveria, as well as the growing conditions and care it receives.

The flowers typically emerge on long stalks from the center of the rosette. They can be a range of colours, including pink, red, yellow, or white, depending on the specific variety. Blooms usually appear in spring or summer, but some varieties may flower at different times of the year.
