Graptosedum 'Vera Higgins' is a hybrid succulent between a Graptopetalum Paraguayense and Sedum Stahlii. It forms clusters of small rosettes that can be used as a filler plant for your succulent arrangements, they grow long stems and become top heavy and will naturally drape over your succulent planters, or they can be used as a ground cover in your drought tolerant landscape. If planted in a shaded area this succulent will turn green, in full sun is where this succulent truly shines, turning into a copper red hue.
Native to: Mexico
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: partial/full sun
Bloomtime : Spring through early Summer

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Amazing quality as always! Best place to buy succulents and cactus!
Never can have enough Hzppy
These were so little when they came but they came in perfect shape and they were pretty dry but a good soak helped!
Cute little plant. I ordered 7 plants and they all came in perfect condition, great packaging. This is my first order and I am very pleased, I will order again.
I am pleased with the quality of my succulents and quick arrival. Packaging prevented any damage during transport. I was excited for this plant because I liked the pink/red color. Unfortunately the plant I received is green without any hints of pink/red.
Hey Erika. Get this plant some extra sun to get those colors to pop again. During shipping the plant is in a very dark condition which causes the colors to dim and lose pigment. Get this baby some extra sun to perk it up to that beautiful vibrant red!
