Graptosedum ‘Alpenglow’ Care Guide

Sunlight: ‘Alpenglow’ loves sunlight. Please place it in a spot with plenty of sunlight, ideally 6 hours or more each day. It can thrive both indoors and outdoors. If indoors, locate near a sunny window or use growing light to provide sufficient light. It hates harsh and intense sunlight because of its damage to the leaf’s surface.

Soil: Use well-draining soil to prevent overwatering. A cactus or succulent mix works well. Or you can make your own succulent at home. Let’s combine regular potting soil with coarse sand or perlite.

Watering: Water sparingly. The exact watering frequency depends on you and your growing conditions. However, there is a typical timetable that you can consult. That occurs every 2 to 3 weeks and only once monthly in dormant seasons. Let the soil dry out between waterings. It’s done when you see the water flow out of the drainage holes.

Temperature: Please keep it in a warm environment. ‘Alpenglow’ prefers temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Please protect it from frost, as it doesn’t like the cold.

Container Gardening: If in a pot, ensure it has drainage holes. This helps prevent waterlogging, which succulents don’t like.

Fertilization: Fertilize sparingly during the growing season (spring and summer). A diluted, balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks is usually sufficient.
