-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.
