About Pachyphytum

Pachyphytum are a group of succulents related closely to the Echeveria and native to Mexico. Their name comes from the Greek word for ‘thick leaves’ and are known for their rosettes of thick fleshy foliage usually covered in a fine powdery-like hue. During summer, you will often see a cluster of modest flowers. Pachyphytum are best suited in small pots and containers in a cool, airy environment such as a conservatory or a greenhouse. You should expect to see Pachyphytum grow to an approximate height and spread of between 30-50cm (12-20”).

How to plant Pachyphytum

Pachyphytum are best planted in pots and containers within cacti compost. You should amend the compost with additional grit or gravel to improve drainage. You may wish to transplant your succulent to a larger container when they become pot bound during spring. Position Pachyphytum in a sunny position all year round where they will absorb plenty of light and heat. Central heating is not an issue so long as you provide sufficient water to prevent them from drying out. After planting, water thoroughly and deeply.

How to care for Pachyphytum

Water Pachyphytum freely throughout active growth whilst young, although you should allow the soil to dry out between applications. This is also relevant during summer, autumn and winter. Once established, Pachyphytum are drought tolerant. The stem coatings are sensitive to handling as the oils from our skin can damage the leaves.
