-About Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver'-

Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' is a stunning succulent plant prized for its unique silvery-blue leaves and velvety texture. Belonging to the Crassulaceae family, this slow-growing plant forms compact rosettes of thick, fleshy leaves that are covered in fine, silvery hairs. With a maximum height of 6 inches and width of 12 inches, this succulent is a perfect addition to any indoor or outdoor garden. The distinct beauty of the Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' succulent makes it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts and collectors.

-How to care for Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver'-

Sun/Location: Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' feels happy to be exposed to full bright sunlight to partial shade. It can also tolerate some direct sunlight in the morning or late afternoon, but avoid exposing it to intense midday sun, as this can scorch its leaves. Place it near a south-facing window with sheer curtains or on a bright east or west-facing windowsill indoors. Choose a spot that receives partial shade or dappled sunlight outdoors. Avoid placing it in full shade, as this can cause the plant to stretch and become leggy.

Soil/Pot: Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' requires well-draining soil to prevent overwatering, leading root rot. You can use our ready-to-use organic succulent soil or make your soil by mixing equal parts of regular soil, gritty rocks, and perlite.

Watering: Like most succulents, Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' is drought-tolerant and should be watered sparingly. Water the plant when the soil is completely dry, usually once every 2-3 weeks. Be careful not to overwater, as this can cause root rot. It would be best if you generally watered your succulents when the soil feels completely dry. Use a watering can or a hose with a gentle stream of water to wet the soil until it's fully saturated. Be sure to water the soil, not the leaves, as wet leaves can encourage fungal growth.

Temperature: Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' prefers warm temperatures between 65-80°F (18-26°C). It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from cold drafts.

Humidity: Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' is adapted to arid environments and does not require high humidity. However, it can benefit from occasional misting during hot and dry periods.

Fertilizer: Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' does not require frequent fertilization. You can fertilize the plant with a succulent-specific fertilizer once every 2-3 months during the growing season.

Propagation: Pachyphytum 'Moon Silver' can be propagated from stem cuttings or by separating the offsets that grow around the base of the plant. Allow the cuttings to callus over before inserting them in well-draining soil.

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

Unfortunately, shipping is not available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. The transit time is too long, and the plants would be dead on arrival.

Due to numerous factors beyond our control, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And, we can no longer guarantee orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico that get delayed by more than 4 in-transit days. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. Thank you for your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
