Graptopetalum macdougallii is an attractive, more or less mat-forming succulent with bright bluish to greenish leaves arranged in rosettes. The rosettes grow to 7.5 cm in diameter, producing offsets on long stolons. Leaves are tongue-shaped, sharply pointed at the apex, up to 3.5 cm long, and up to 1.5 cm wide. They spread during the growth season and connivent during dormancy.

The flowers are star-shaped, 5-merous, up to 2 cm across, and appear in late winter and early spring. The petals are whitish-yellow-green with scattered reddish blotches and stripes at the base, almost solid red colouration towards the tips, and apically yellowish-green.

How to Grow and Care

When planting your Ghost Plant in a container, choose a well-drained potting mix and a container with drainage holes.

Try mixing Ghost Plant with other succulents for an exciting yet low-maintenance planting. You can also incorporate your Ghost Plant into a rock garden. You can create a rock garden by piling large rocks like limestone as the base and filling in gaps with smaller stones, gravel, and soil pockets for planting.

Ghost Plants thrive in sunlight, so choose a location to receive full- or half-day sun. When grown as a houseplant, keep it near a bright window.

Some prefer to keep their Ghost Plant trimmed to create a fuller shape. For a different look, you can allow it to get a little “leggy.” This allows the twisting stems to climb out of the pot, cascading down gently. Be sure to let the soil almost completely dry between waterings.
