Graptoveria, or Graptos are the result of a cross between Graptopetalum and Echeveria with the rosette and waxy features of both. Graptoveria ‘Moonglow’ is a charming type of Grapto. It`s a common houseplant with ease of care and interesting foliage.
The Moonglow plant is in a class by itself due to its color, form and flower. While many Echeveria have a similar appearance, the influence from Graptopetalum lends the plant an iridescent tone and soft magical color. The diminutive plant looks very at home either in its own container or combined with other succulents, including cacti. Moonglow is a flowering succulent that is mostly grown as a houseplant. With little frost tolerance, the plant can be grown outdoors during summer in northern gardens but should be brought in when cold temperatures threaten. The plant grows just 6 inches (15 cm.) tall and 10 inches (25 cm.) across. Moonglow has thick, diamond-shaped, greenish cream leaves with an attractive blush to the edges. The orange-yellow bell-like flowers arrive in late spring to early summer.
