Description

Pachyphytum compactum is a beautiful succulent plant that forms rosettes of 30 to 80 mostly congested leaves. The stems are often basally branched and usually upright. The leaves are thick, fleshy, tubular, and pointed at the tip, with angular facets on the upper surface caused by pressure from neighbouring leaves. They are blue-green and become tinged with violet when gently stressed. The leaves can grow up to 4 cm long and 1.5 cm wide.
