The incredibly thick leaves of Graptoveria amethorum feature a sea foam green base coloration, offset by a speckled layer of silver that will begin to blush a rosy pink when exposed to ample sunlight! The margins and keel of each leaf are sharply defined, and a faint line also appears down the centerline of the topside of each leaf – a trait not commonly seen in other succulent varieties. Reaching only 4 inches in height and width at maturity, Graptoveria amethorum makes an excellent contrast plant within container arrangements – though it can certainly stand alone on a sunny windowsill, where its pink blooms will add yet another layer of intrigue during the spring and summer months!
Though it is a rare hybrid variety, Graptoveria amethorum has relatively commonplace care requirements. Bright sunlight will ensure its best coloration and most compact growth form, while thorough but infrequent watering will shield this densely fleshy plant from ills such as rot or pests. The ‘soak and dry’ method works extremely well for this purpose, and a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot will further recreate the arid conditions to which this succulent is most adapted.
During the winter months, be sure to protect the water-filled leaves from frosty temperatures, which could otherwise cause permanent scarring to Graptoveria amethorum.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
