Its rosettes feature thick, fleshy leaves that showcase a captivating blend of blue-green and lavender colors. This plant thrives in well-draining soil and requires infrequent watering, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. It is drought-tolerant and can withstand dry conditions, making it an ideal choice for xeriscaping or water-wise gardens.

  • Soil Recommendation: To ensure optimal growth, Pachyveria 'Draco' requires well-draining soil. Use a succulent and cactus potting mix or create a blend with a combination of regular potting soil, perlite, and coarse sand.
