Soil: Prefers average to sandy, well drained soil with pH range of 6.6 to 7.5. If the soil is not porous enough, add 3 inches of sand or other gritty material to increase drainage. Top the area with a layer of pebbles or small rocks to act as mulch. Light: Full sun to part shade -- In the heat of summer (or much of the year in the desert), Pachyphytum appreciate protection from harsh sun. Situate them beneath shade cloth or lacy trees, and remove any leaf litter that collects in the crowns. It is best for plants grown indoors, when first taking them outdoors, to expose it to bright sunlight gradually to prevent sun scorch. Water: After establishment, water occasionally during the hot season. Be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant. Spacing: 6-12 inches Fertilizing: Pachyphytum rarely need fertilizer. If your plant seems a little pale and lethargic, use a water soluble fertilizer mixed about half strength, and less often than recommended. Winterizing: Not frost tolerant. Give them plenty of bright light; a greenhouse is best, but a bright sun porch will do. Reduce water during winter to encourage dormancy; then, in spring, feed with a dilute liquid fertilizer (half-strength) to promote new growth. Maintenance & Pruning: Remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows.
