Graptopetalum Mendozae


Graptopetalum Mendozae is a small spreading succulent that grows up to 15cm tall and is a great ‘filler’ for any potted arrangement or a smaller gap in any garden. The leaves are plump, greyish in colour with faint lavender to pink flushes when exposed to more sun.

Mendozae flowers anytime from mid-winter through to spring, with very similar flowers to that of Graptopetalum Paraguayense but in a smaller form.

This succulent is sometimes prone to rust but not so much mealy bug or scale in my experience. They are reasonably slow growing, unlike Paraguayense which will grow profusely when given the right season and position in your garden. Feed in their growth season which starts early autumn through to winter.
