Tacitus bella

Graptopetalum (Tacitus) bellum, native to Chihuahua, Mexico, forms miniature compact star-shaped rosettes to 3" in diameter with very ornate grayish-green leaves. Leaves appear to have a silvery overlay. Offsets to form clusters to 4" in diameter. During the spring months, branched flower spikes with 10 or more flowers each are produced. Flowers are a startling scarlet and can exceed 1" in diameter. This is the "Orchid" of the Crassulaceae! Prefers very porous soil with excellent drainage. This plant, as with the Echeverias and other similar members of this family, grow in rocky inclines in habitat and require extra drainage for healthy root systems. Bright, filtered light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly but allow to dry between waterings. Can tolerate some frost, but best to provide protection to prevent possible scarring.
