Graptosedum ‘Ghosty' should be watered using the “soak and dry” method. Be sure that the soil is completely dry after watering to avoid root rot and pests.

How to Propagate Graptosedum ‘Ghosty'
‘Ghosty' is easily propagated by leaves or cuttings.
To propagate Graptosedum ‘Ghosty' from leaves, twist a leaf from the mother plant. Be sure that none of the leaf remains on the stem, or you will have a smaller chance of success.
Allow the leaf to dry out for several days so that the end callouses over, and then place on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil is completely dry.
‘Ghosty' will also drop leaves and propagate on its own, making it an easy plant for those just beginning with propagation.
To propagate ‘Ghosty' from cuttings, use a sharp, sterile knife or pair of scissors and cut a piece of the plant just above a leaf on the stem. Allow it to dry for a couple of days, and place in well-draining soil.
