Sedeveria Pink Granite is a stunning succulent gaining popularity among plant enthusiasts due to its appearance and simple care requirements. In this article, we’ll explore what makes this succulent special and share tips on how to care for it, even if you’re new to growing succulents.
Sedeveria Pink Granite is a hybrid succulent from the Crassulaceae family. It’s a cross between Sedum pachyphyllum and Echeveria derenbergii, inheriting attractive traits from both parent plants.
This succulent typically grows to 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 centimeters). It spreads to a similar width.
The beauty of its leaves attracts me. They are small, spoon-shaped leaves covered in a powdery, pinkish-lavender color. When we touch the leaf’s surface, it is soft and fleshy. Due to this texture, it can store water more easily.
I also fell in love with its flowers. They are lovely, small and show the color of pink, red or coral. These flowers often appear in warm months, such as summer or spring. However, their duration is often short. They last for a week, then they are gone. It is annoying to wait for the next blooming season.
Like other Sedeveria, its roots play the same role in succulent health. I can list some functions of these roots, such as helping this succulent stay upright, holding water, and absorbing nutrients from the soil. This is because its roots grow shallowly instead of deep into the soil.

Caring for Your Sedeveria Pink Granite
Light: This succulent loves bright, indirect sunlight for 6 hours to 8 hours. Be cautious about exposing it to intense afternoon sun, which can cause sunburn. If you use artificial light, provide 12 to 14 hours per day. Placing it near a south or east-facing window is ideal.
Soil: Ensure you plant your Pink Granite in well-draining soil. A commercial succulent or cactus mix works well. Adding perlite or coarse sand to improve drainage is a good idea. Or you can create your soil at home by mixing potting soil with sand, pumice, or perlite.
Watering: Allow the soil’s top inch (about 2.5 centimeters) to dry before watering. In the dormant winter months, water sparingly. During the growing season (spring and summer), watering may be required every 7-10 days. In the dormant season (fall and winter), the frequency will decrease to once a month or less.
Temperature: Our Pink Granite loves warmth (18°C to 27°C). Please protect it from frost and freezing temperatures, as it is not cold-hardy.
Fertilization: Feed your succulent with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks in growing seasons. Try not to fertilize this succulent during the dormant period in winter.
DO YOU KNOW? Caring (propagating, pruning/trimming, beheading, watering, …) is a set of skills that is widely applicable to succulents. Read the in-depth guide here >>Richard Miller – Succulent City
Container Gardening: If you plant your Sedeveria Pink Granite in a pot, ensure the container has drainage holes to prevent water accumulation. Repotting may be necessary every few years if the plant outgrows its current pot.
Pruning: Remove dead or damaged leaves to encourage healthy growth and maintain the plant’s appearance.
