Graptopetalum Superbum Paraguayense Succulent is a native of Mexico and sometimes referred to as Ghost Plant or Mother of Pearl. The leaves of the rosette are a pale grey-blue often with a pink tint. In the spring, small white flowers with red spots grow on multi-branched stems above the plant itself. This Graptopetalum can grow over the sides if planted in a pot and the rosettes will hang down until the stems can not support the weight. This succulent is fragile and will break apart if handled too much. If a rosette does get broken or falls off of this plant, then you can relocate that piece into another pot and enjoy even more Graptopetalum Superbum Paraguayense.
