In the process of breeding Graptoveria 'Opalina, generally we can choose five copies of perlite and two garden soil preparation, and 3 of the fine sand mixed into the pot before the need to increase in pelvic bone or bottom of slag. Put it in cool and dry air during growing indoors, put it in a cool and dry indoor air in the growth period. In summer watering once a week.
The root system of Graptoveria 'Opalina' is strict to the respiration of the soil, and prefers to grow in organic soil with smooth drainage and good air permeability. Generally, 5 parts of perlite, 2 parts of Garden soil and 3 parts of fine sand can be used for mixed preparation. Before entering the basin, bone powder or broken slag should be added at the bottom of the basin to make the respiration of the root system more smooth.
Illumination requirements are the basic conditions for the cultivation methods and precautions of Graptoveria 'Opalina'. It belongs to the light-loving plant, which is placed in the cool and dry indoor air during the growth period. When the temperature rises, it needs shade treatment.
For newly cultivated plants, the soil should be kept slightly wet during the slow seedling period, not too dry and not too wet. The humidity should be kept at about 30% ~ 40%, and then the plants should be placed in the ventilated place with bright light for about 1 ~ 2 weeks, slowly increase the illumination time, and do not water at the same time.
Graptoveria 'Opalina' has a strong drought resistance, during the growth, watering once a week in summer, too much watering will only lead to loose branches and leaves and dark color, In winter, water after the soil becomes dry. When the temperature is less than 0℃, stop watering.
When the temperature is higher than 30℃ in summer, the plants should be put in a cool and ventilated place. When the temperature is higher than 35℃, the plants will stop growing and enter dormancy. At this time, there is no need to water the plants.
