Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Graptoveria ‘Silver Star’
‘Silver Star’ is a favorite among succulent lovers, and for good reason. This succulent adds a lot of interest to your summer succulent garden.
‘Silver Star’ 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
‘Silver Star’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 10° F (-12.2° 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. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Graptoveria ‘Silver Star’
Graptoveria ‘Silver Star’ will produce small offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
You can propagate the leaves of ‘Silver Star’ by choosing a firm, healthy leaf. Remove it from the main plant by gently twisting the leaf from the stem. Be sure not to leave any of the leaf on the stem (if you take a bit of the stem with the leaf, that’s fine, too!).
Allow the leaf to callous over for several days, and then lay on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried completely. After roots and a rosette have appeared, and the mother leaf has withered away, plant the new growth.
