Graptopetalum or ghost plants are native to Mexico. These succulents require well drained soil to do well in containers. The leaves form in a rosette pattern and as they age rosettes appear on the end of long stems. This genus is very closely related to Echeveria and can actually be crossed with one another to form Graptoveria. The chalky coating on the leaves is the plants "sunscreen" to protect the leaves from the sun.
