Hunting for a dainty house plant that adds color and charm to any desk or table? Looking for a no fuss plant to distract you from your daily stress? Graptoveria Silver Star, a succulent, native to Mexico and a cross between Echeveria and Graptopetalum, is a superb option. This delicate spiral of mint-green foliage will be your new constant companion, never shouting at you when it becomes “agitated”, but instead, only offering you added joy as the ends of its leaves change from green to hazy shades of rose. And, in the spring? This lovely succulent will please you even more as it yields beautiful blooms in ivory and pink. 

Best Locations For Growing Graptoveria Silver Star

Choose a room with bright direct light; temperatures ranging between 65° and 80° F; and humidity levels ranging between 40% to 50%. A brightly lit bathroom, for example, would be a prime location.

Graptoveria Silver Star Sunlight Requirements

Graptoveria Silver Star prefers six hours of bright direct and indirect light in order to maintain its attractive form and gorgeous colors. Choose a south-facing, west-facing, or east-facing windowsill to display your plant.

Graptoveria Silver Star Care

Graptoveria Silver Star adores acidic, well-draining soil. A typical house potting soil amended with peat moss and perlite should provide a delightful habitat for this new addition to your home or office plant assortment. This succulent’s low maintenance regimen includes minimal repotting. Simply repot when the roots have outgrown the current pot, and select a new container 1 to 2 inches larger than the old pot. Due to its small size, Graptoveria Silver Star does not need frequent pruning; however, occasionally trimming dead leaves to support new growth and avoid disease will facilitate growth. Propagation can be done using stem cuttings and offsets. 

Watering Graptoveria Silver Star

While Graptoveria Silver Star requires little fuss, this drought-tolerant perennial is susceptible to overwatering and underwatering; overwatering being the worst of the two. To prevent overwatering, it’s wise to do a moisture check prior to watering. Simply insert your finger one to two inches beneath the surface of the soil. If the soil is dry, then water. If not, wait a few days to do another moisture check. During the blooming season (spring and summer), the need to water will increase.

Feeding Graptoveria Silver Star

Graptoveria Silver Star can survive in soil depleted of nutrients.  As a result, this evergreen perennial is sensitive to overfeeding. The only time it may be necessary to add a little fertilizer to this houseplant’s soil is during the blooming season when this succulent needs more minerals to help it produce flowers. Using a low-nitrogen fertilizer during this period will help Graptoveria Silver Star yield more vibrant blooms.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
