Graptopetalum paraguayense is a species of succulent plant in the jade plant family, Crassulaceae, that is native to Tamaulipas, Mexico.

Graptopetalum paraguayense ‘Ghost Plant’ do best in areas that receive plenty of bright, partial sunlight. Light Shade to full Sun is best for these plants. They can also tolerate full sun but need to be acclimated to full sun in the beginning to prevent sunburn. They will showcase their best pigmentation of different shades of pale pastels when exposed to more light. The plant has a powdery, waxy coating on its leaves that serves as a protection from the sun. The more intense the sun, the prettier its colors become. Keep them under the shade and the plant will turn a dull gray color.

Before moving the plant outdoors or increasing the amount of sunlight it receives, it is better to acclimate the plant by gradually increasing the amount of sunlight it receives until it is fully acclimated to the more intense sun. Keep in mind that even when the plant is already acclimated to full sun, it can still get sunburned during a heatwave or intense heat.

Care instructions: For reference, in the summer months I water my Graptopetalum paraguayense ‘Ghost Plant’ as often as every 7-10 days. I cut back on watering to about every 10-14 days when the weather cools down during spring and fall seasons. During the winter season, I rely mostly on rainwater and hold back on watering altogether because this is when we get a lot of rain in my area. But if we don’t get any rain at all during winter then I water at least once a month or every 2-3 weeks, depending on how dry the soil gets. Keep in mind that I live in a very dry climate and I have most of my succulents outdoors.
