Where to Plant
Pachyphytum oviferum is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° 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 Pachyphytum oviferum "Pink Moonstone"
Pachyphytum oviferum "Pink Moonstone" can be propagated by stem cuttings or leaves.
To grow "Pink Moonstone" from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing it on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
To propagate "Pink Moonstone" 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.
