Description

x Pachyveria 'Scheideckeri' is a succulent that forms compact rosettes of fleshy, red-flushed pale grey to blue-green leaves. It is a very variable hybrid that produces smaller or larger normal rosettes as well as rosettes with variegated and often distorted leaves. Cymes of yellow to orange-red flowers appear in spring or summer.

Hardiness

USDA hardiness zone 10a to 11b: from 30 °F (−1.1 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).

How to Grow and Care

Pachyphytum will not tolerate frosts well. Temperatures below 20 °F (-6 °C) will kill the plant, and temperatures which may go below 45 °F (7 °C) during the extended period should be avoided. Pachyphytum tolerates high heat and intense sunlight. As with most Crassulaceae, Pachyphytum can tolerate (and even appreciated) poor soil conditions, so long as it is well-draining. Pachyphytum can thrive in full or partial sunlight.

Allow the soil to dry out before watering and avoid getting water on the leaves. In winter, the plants will require more water, as winter begins its active growth season. If you are unsure when to water your Pachyphytum, watch the lowermost leaves for drying signs and water them then. Pachyphytum is FAR more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit "under-full" when they need water.

Leaf-cutting entails cutting a young leaf from near the center of the rosette. Leave the leaf out in the open air for a day to allow the wound to callous over. See more at: How to Grow and Care for Pachyphytum.

Origin

It is a very variable hybrid of Pachyphytum bracteosum and Echeveria secunda.

Pachyveria, sometimes referred to as x Pachyveria, are hybrid succulents that are a cross between Pachyphytum and Echeveria. They are rosette-shaped succulents that come in a wide array of shapes and sizes.

There are a multitude of Pachyphytum cultivars, but they are one of the most popular succulent hybrids on the market. Gardeners love how easy they are to care for, and their unique appearances are a bonus.


Highlights

Pachyveria 'Clavifolia' or "Jeweled Crown" (Pachyphytum bracteosum × Echeveria rosea) (Deleuil): A powder blue rosette of round, fleshy leaves that can blush pink at the edges when grown in bright sunlight. These medium rosettes stay under 6.0" wide and their stems can grow up to 6.0" tall. Their soft, pastel coloring is highlighted with a coating of epicuticular wax (farina) that helps them withstand hot, dry conditions.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need bright sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

This variety is easy to re-root from stem cuttings and mature leaves. Look to our Succulent Cuttings Guide for tips on succulent propagation.
