Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Graptoveria ‘Debbie’

‘Debbie’ is a Graptopetalum and Echeveria hybrid whose beautiful purple tones grow deeper in full sun.

Watering

‘Debbie’ has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

Graptoveria ‘Debbie’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun. Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day.

How to Propagate Graptoveria ‘Debbie’

Graptoveria ‘Debbie’ can be propagated from leaves or offsets.

Leaves

When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem. This will give you a better chance of a successful propagation.

Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.

Cuttings

To grow Graptoveria ‘Debbie’ from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a leaf from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.

Seeds

When growing ‘Debbie’ from seed, be sure that the temperature is warmer, or you are using a grow light and seed warmer. Sow seeds in well-draining soil, watering whenever the soil is dry. Germination can take several weeks or longer, depending on your growing environment.

Offsets

‘Debbie’ will produce small rosette offsets. Cut the offsets off from the main stem with a sharp, sterile knife or scissors. Allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before laying on well-draining soil.
