About Graptopetalum ‘Amethystinum’

Graptopetalum 'Amethystinum', also known as 'Lavender Pebbles' or 'Jewel Leaf Plant', is a native Mexican succulent. Its chubby, rounded leaves exhibit a lovely lavender color, reminiscent of the popular succulent variety called Moonstones (Pachyphytum oviferum). While Graptopetalum amethystinum displays a distinct purple hue, Pachyphytum oviferum typically showcases pale green or bluish-green leaves with hints of pink or purple on the leaf margins. Graptopetalum amethystinum produces delicate star-shaped flowers in pale pink or yellow shades, while Pachyphytum oviferum bears bell-shaped flowers on tall stems, available in pink, yellow, or white tones.

How to care for Graptopetalum ‘Amethystinum’

Sun/Location: Unlike most Echeveria succulents, Graptopetalum 'Amethystinum' is a full-year grower except in hot summer. This succulent variety is easily colored if they get enough sunlight for 2-3 days. However, they are easy to turn green as well for lacking sun. In cold winter, bringing them inside and growing them near south-faced windows or under a grow light is the key to keeping them surviving and thriving. Click here to learn why succulents lose color.

Soil/Pot: Porous, well-draining succulent soil is the basis for growing healthy succulents. You can purchase our ready-to-use soil mix or make your own. Simply mix gritty rocks and perlite with regular potting soil, and you can get your own made soil. 

Watering: Like Echeveria Ice Green, Graptopetalum 'Amethystinum' prefers less water than other succulent plants. It is recommended to water when the leaves are slightly wrinkled. In summer, less or no water works if necessary to avoid leaf rot caused by overwatering. Get rid of them when the soft and transparent leaves appear, or you will lose the whole plant.

Shipping

We pack all shipments by hand. 

We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!

Could not for a better specimen.

Gorgeous, beautiful, full plant. Could not for a better specimen. Love it. The only problem you guys have is there is always a lot of soil missing from the pots also some of the plants are kind of beat up upon arrival but they seem to come back.
