With distinctly layered, flattened rosettes of broad gray and lavender leaves coated in a thick layer of powdery farina, Graptopetalum pentandrum 'Superbum' lends calming and peaceful vibes to any space of which it is a part. With each rosette reaching up to 5 inches in width, this variety makes an exceptional specimen plant on a sunny windowsill, or a high contrast component within container arrangements – especially when paired with bright green or deep red succulent cultivars!

As is the case with most uniquely hued succulents, ‘Superbum’ prefers bright lighting conditions – though it is overall less prone to etiolating than other rosette-shaped plants, such as Echeveria. It also strongly prefers dry growing conditions reminiscent of its native Mexico, with a thorough watering being provided only once the soil has become completely dried through from the last one.  A porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot will help achieve this environment, as will ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface.

During the winter months, be sure to shield ‘Superbum’ from frost – and in the spring, your efforts will be rewarded with tall inflorescences of uniquely hued blooms in shades of light green with crimson petal tips.

    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!
