Overview

Pachyphytum compactum is an attractive succulent plant from the Crassulaceae family. Grown for the fleshy, succulent leaves, this plant produces beautiful blue-green, plump leaves with round tips. The leaves have attractive marble-like markings across their surface, hence this plant is commonly known by the name Little Jewel. It is a popular houseplant, but not the most common. Little Jewel can grow in poor soil conditions as long as it's well-drained. Enjoys bright sunlight, place on a sunny windowsill if growing as a houseplant indoors. Protect from freezing and be careful about overwatering as succulents don't need much and are prone to root rot if overwatered.
