The Graptopetalum paraguayense plant is slow-growing.


The Ghost plants flower in subtle white color from the spring to summer months. The star-shaped blooms make the succulent stand out. 


These plants prefer not to be overwatered. It is recommended to water them when they are dry, then wait until the soil is fully dry before watering them once again. Additionally, make sure they don't suffer from wet soil-induced root rot by keeping careful care.


A porous and well-drained soil mix is ideal for these succulents. Effective drainage is crucial.
