    1. Graptopetalum Purple Delight

     Graptopetalum Purple Delight or Graptopetalum Snow White is a plant species of the Crassulaceae family. This succulent has perfect purple rosette shape. Its leaves can margin color from lavender-gray to frosy-white under stress.

     Graptopetalum Purple Delight is a slow-growing succulent species.

    Graptopetalum Snow White thrives well under full sun, bright indoor light. However, avoid direct sunlight to prevent evaporation.

     Water deeply enough to allow water to flow down the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to dry completely before watering again.

     Well-draining Soil.

     This succulent thrives in temperatures of 65°F-75°F. It is vital to ensure the room temperature does not fall below 60°F.

     This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

    2. Crassula Moonglow Succulent

     Crassula Moonglow has thick fleshy gray-green leaves that form compact square rosettes stacked on top of each other like a tower as high as 18 inches. The plant needs a lot of support so that the stacked column will not fall over. Its leaves are covered with fine short hairs, giving it a chalky fuzzy look.

     Crassula Moonglow produces clusters of small pink-orange flowers in winter or spring.

     Full sun. Full shade is not recommended to prevent etiolation and rot.

     Porous and well-drained potting mix.

     Water thoroughly only when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely.

     Cold Tolerance: Down to at least 27 °F.

    3. Tiger's Jaw Crassula

     Faucaria tigrina, also known as Tiger's Jaw Crassula, is a small succulent clump-forming perennial. The leaves are thick, triangular, and light green. They can turn purple when received plenty of sun exposure. On the margins of the leaves, there are upright soft, white (up to 10) teeth in opposite pairs that look like an animal’s jaw.

     Tiger's Jaw Crassula produces large silky yellow flowers.

     Full sun.

     Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Reduce watering in the winter.

     Well-Drained, Porous, Gritty. Optimal pH is around 6.0 (slightly acidic).

     Average summer temperatures from 65ºF/18ºC to 70ºF/21ºC are ideal. In winter, it can survive temperatures as low as 50ºF/10ºC.

     Feed once with a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.

     You can propagate Tiger’s Jaw Crassula by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. The easiest way is to propagate from a single leaf: put the leaf in a succulent or cacti mix, then cover until it sprouts.

    4. Echeveria Dark Moon

     Echeveria Dark Moon is a plant species of the Crassulaceae family. This succulent has a distinctive burgundy black rosette shape. The leaves not only have black coloration but also include tones of deep blue and purple, making for an eye-catching succulent.

     Echeveria Dark Moon is a slow-growing succulent species.

    This echeveria thrives well under full sun, bright indoor light. However, avoid direct sunlight to prevent evaporation.

     Water deeply enough to allow water to flow down the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to dry completely before watering again.

     Well-draining Soil.

     This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

    5. Tillandsia Velutina

     Tillandsia Velutina is an elegant air plant with soft, sage green leaves. Velutina is very easy to grow despite its delicate appearance. The purple flowers look gorgeous when in bloom.

     Tillandsia Velutina does well indoors but likes bright, indirect light. Keep this plant away from direct sunlight as this will cause the plant to develop burn marks.

     No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.

     Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Tillandsia Velutina will also benefit from a soaking bath every month. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent root.
