Graptosedum 'Alpenglow' is of the genus Graptosedum in the Crassulaceae family native to Mexico. It is an intergeneric hybrid resulting from the cross between Graptosedum paraguayensis and Sedum stahlii. The plant shape is very similar to the hazel moon of the genus Pinellia. The petals are waxed and the leaves are arranged in an extended rosette of white powder.

The leaves are usually green with vermilion tinged with red brown when there is sufficient sunlight, and the leaves are melon-shaped with pointed ends and small yellow star-shaped flowers. The waxy leaves with a special color, in full sunlight conditions, appear attractive deep red. In low light, the color will become dull and the stems will elongate. It can absorb formaldehyde and purify the air.

 

Care Tips

Light: It needs plenty of light in spring and fall, otherwise it will cause the plant to have excessive growth of branches, cause it to lose its shape, thin the leaves, dull the color of the leaves, and reduce the white powder on the leaf surface. 

Water: Watering master the principle of "not dry, not watering" to avoid potting soil water. The center of the leaf cluster should not be waterlogged, otherwise it will cause rotten, especially to avoid long-term rain. During hot summer time moderate watering, this time basically you do not need to water, you can spray the plant with appropriate water to cool down.

Soil: Is mainly loose and breathable loam, so the soil for potted plants can be mixed with sandy loam and coarse sand, and the right amount of fertilizer can be added to the soil as a nutrient for growth.

Potting: It is recommended to use ceramic pots. Ceramic pots have a certain degree of permeability. Clay pots lose water too quickly, plastic pots tend to retain water for too long and permeability is poor.

Temperature: Once the temperature is higher than 95°F (35 ℃), you will need to use shade, or there is a risk of sunburn, and then slowly cut off water, the entire summer dormant period less water or no water, by Mid-September when the temperature comes down and you will start to resume watering. Winter, if the temperature can be maintained above 32°F(0 ℃) , is able to give water. If it's below 32°F (0 ℃) then you need to cut off water, otherwise it is easy to frostbite rotten roots. 

Humidity: Alpenglow grows well in average household humidity levels when grown indoors. Prefers a drier environment. Normal household humidity is good for this plant.

    Care Instructions

    Please visit our Succulent Care info page for more details.

    To ensure the health of succulents, it is important to plant them in porous, well-draining soil. Succulents require little watering, but don't like to sit in wet soil. To create an adequate cactus mix, simply add pumice, perlite, or grit to cactus soil to provide the proper drainage.

    Make sure to leave drought periods between waterings to prevent the plant from water-logging.
