Moon Silver

Scientific Name: Pachyphytum Oviferum

Genus: Pachyphytum

The pachyphytum oviferum, or moon silver succulent, is a soft light blue rosette succulent with large round leaves! I have had success propagating this succulent from it’s leaves. The thick leaves are extremely easy to remove from the stem without damaging the ends, this is important if you want to propagate from the leaves!

    Hello! I recently bought this succulent and was just wondering if the “Moon Silver” succulent dies after blooming? Thank you so much!

      I bought one and it came pink but is now mainly dusty-green. How many hours of sunlight does it need to show the stressed colors again?

        Mine usually show colors of stress with 12 hours of bright LED lights, however natural sunlight is much stronger so the time outside would be less. Also watering less frequently can also stress succulents and bring out their bright colors!

      Definitely sounds like you need more water, my moon silver succulents do this too! I always water them at the same time as my other succulents but often find myself having to water them again separately halfway through the week. I wasnt sure if it was a common thing with this type of succulent or if my cuttings still hadn’t developed strong roots. This comment leads me to believe it might be the succulent type! Let me know if you keep experiencing this, I would love to update the watering section of this post if I am able to conclude that this type typically needs more water than your average succulent.
