Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Graptosedum ‘Ghosty’

‘Ghosty’ grows well in container gardens or in garden beds. As it grows, it spreads out, trailing down.

Watering

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.

Where to Plant

‘Ghosty’ should be planted in well-draining soil. Place in an area of your garden that receives full sun. If growing indoors, it tends to stretch quickly.

Fertilizing

This succulent should be fertilized in the early spring, when its growing season begins.

Commonly Mistaken For

Graptopetalum paraguayense “Ghost Plant”

How to Propagate Graptosedum ‘Ghosty’

‘Ghosty’ is easily propagated by leaves or cuttings.

Leaves

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.

Cuttings

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.
