Looking for a stunning and low-maintenance plant to brighten up your indoor or garden space? The Opalina succulent, known as the Graptoveria 'Opalina' - is a delightful cultivar resulting from a cross between Echeveria colorata and Graptopetalum amethystinum, an interesting species of Echeveria and Graptopetalum. 

This perennial fast-growing succulent plant is a true gem, with its easy-care nature, native to California. It forms rosettes of pink and blue-green leaves, usually grows upright to 6 inches wide, or slowly produces offsets. This Opalina plant is perfect for those who are looking for something that is both fun and exciting.  

When this plant only receives partial sunlight then it would turn powdery blue-green and have a nice farina covering. The edges will blush pink as you move them into more direct light.  

Keep an eye out for vibrant flowers in the spring, that are sure to add a pop of color to your space, while the offsetting growth habit means that it will slowly fill in any empty areas. Owing to its distinctive size and shape, it is also frequently used in landscaping. 

Overall, this hybrid Graptoveria 'Opalina' is an easy plant to care for and makes a great addition to any succulent collection! 

 

Watering Needs 

The Graptoveria Opalina needs moderate watering 1-2 times a week, especially during its first season in a new planting container. To prevent rot and infestations, you should let the soil get completely dry between waterings between spring and autumn. Reduce watering during the winter to prevent damage from freezing or frost and avoid getting the leaves wet.  

 

Light Requirements 

With a little attention, Opalina succulent plant can be grown in partial shade. However, full sun is the only option if you want this plant to look its best. It's interesting to note that depending on the amount of light available, this plant's coloration can vary greatly. 

 It's crucial to place your succulents away from any areas with constant direct sunlight, as doing so could result in burned foliage. 

 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

The Opalina succulent plants favor very airy, sandy soil that drains well. Planting them in ordinary soil will result in compacted roots, stunted growth and most likely root rot. Instead make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally use our specialized potting mix that contains over 10 natural substrates and mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your succulent/cactus to thrive. 

And let's not forget about fertilizing! Ideally, you should look for a natural fertilizer with an approximate blend of 5-10-15 (N-P-K) that is higher in phosphorus than nitrogen. The best choice is to use a natural or organic fertilizer as they last longer and keep your soil alive by adding other beneficial compounds and microbes that encourage plant health and nutrient absorption. 

 

 

Hardiness Zones & More

The Gravptoveria opalina plant enjoys hot temperatures. They prefer constant temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit and can tolerate triple digits in the summer, so don't worry if your succulents get too hot.  

These succulent plants, on the other hand, cannot handle frost, cold, or freezing temperatures, so make sure it doesn't get below 32 degrees Fahrenheit in its environment.  If grown outdoors, these Opalina succulents grow best in USDA zone 10 - 11.
