Flowering Months

1 x 12cm potted pachyphytum plant (KB3783)

Grow Pachyphytum in a bright position. It prefers full sun, but will tolerate semi-shade. Pachyphytum is surprisingly hardy, tolerating temperatures down to -6C (20F) provided that the soil is not wet.
Feed and water regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between each watering. Plants are best watered from below to avoid droplets damaging the foliage. Drain thoroughly after water to prevent rotting.
