XGraptoveria Douglas Huth is one of the classic succulent varieties of the Sedum family, small to medium sized plants. The parent is suspected, which was hybridized by Graptopetalum Paraguyense with a certain genus of stone lotus, the parent of which may be E. Gigantea.
Succulents prefer it because of its relatively easy to conserve and reproduce properties and its romantic pink foliage.
XGraptoveria douglas huth leaves are rosette loosely arranged. It has thin white cream powder with wax, spatulate leaf, plain slightly concave, apex upturned. Shapes vary greatly under different lighting conditions. The open maintenance (full sunshine) is pink (maybe microstrip orange yellow tone), indoor maintenance is blue-green. Flowers are pale yellow, red flecked inside, 5-petals. Old plants will sprout from the base of the side, into a cluster of plants.
XGraptoveria Douglas Huth prefers a sunny, warm, dry and well-ventilated environment. It is drought tolerant, cold tolerant, tolerant of half shade. The main growing season is spring and autumn, and there is no obvious dormant period.
XGraptoveria Douglas Huth needs to receive enough sunlight to make the leaves colorful, the plant shape more compact and beautiful, and the leaves thicken. If the sunshine is too little, the color of the leaves is shallow, the arrangement of the leaves is loose, the spacing between the leaves is longer, and the leaves become thinner. In addition to the summer, pay attention to appropriate shading.
XGraptoveria Douglas Huth is a small and medium-sized plant. With the growth state, the basin should be changed every 1 to 2 years. The diameter of the basin can be 1 to 2 inches larger than the diameter of the plant, which can promote the growth of the plant.
Generally wait until the soil is dry before watering. Although the leaves are not easy to dip water out of the white powder, if the heart of the leaves water retention too long, it is easy to cause decay.
Soil can be mixed with peat, granular soil (deer marsh soil, red jade soil, etc.) coal cinder river sand, soil surface laid clean river sand or particles.
XGraptoveria Douglas Huth may apply long-acting fertilizer quarterly.
In summer, once the temperature is above 35 degrees, you need to shade it with sunscreen and then slowly cut off the water. There is little or no water during the rest of the summer. By mid-September, when the temperature has cooled down, watering can resume. XGraptoveria Douglas Huth, who is adapted to the sun room, can still grow normally in summer, but dormancy is not obvious.
In winter, if the temperature can be maintained above 0 degrees, water is available, below 0 degrees to cut off water, otherwise it is easy to frostbite. Although it is cold in winter, we only give a little water at the appropriate time in the root of xGraptoveria Douglas Huth, do not spray or give water. As temperatures rise in the spring, the water can slowly return to normal.
XGraptoveria Douglas Huth propagation adopts the method of leaf insertion and beheading to break small side buds. It is generally carried out in spring and autumn, and can also be carried out in winter in areas north of the Yangtze River.
XGraptoveria Douglas Huth can display a strong exotic atmosphere in the garden landscape, creating a beautiful garden artistic effect.
