Pachyphytum is a genus of succulent plants native to Mexico and Central America. These plants are known for their thick, fleshy leaves and vibrant colors. Some tips on how to care for pachyphytum plants:

  • Light: Pachyphytum plants prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can cause the leaves to become sunburnt and brown.
  • Water: Pachyphytum plants are drought-tolerant and do not need a lot of water. Water them deeply once a week, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot.
  • Soil: Pachyphytum plants prefer well-draining soil that is slightly alkaline. A mixture of potting soil, perlite, or sand works well.
  • Fertilizer: Pachyphytum plants do not need a lot of fertilization. A balanced liquid fertilizer can be applied monthly during the growing season.
  • Propagation: Pachyphytum plants can be propagated by separating the offsets (baby plants) from the mother plant and planting them in well-draining soil.
  • Pests: Pachyphytum plants are generally resistant to pests but can be prone to mealybugs and aphids. You can treat any pests with a mild soap solution or a chemical insecticide if you notice any pests.
  • Winter care: In colder climates, one should bring pachyphytum plants indoors to protect them from frost. Keep them in a sunny location and water them sparingly to prevent overwatering.

Chalksticks as of December 2022

I wiped off the chalky coating, so it’s very green. I didn’t realize it was supposed to be there at the time.
