Moonstones can thrive in full or partial sunlight. As with most Crassulaceae , Pachyphytum can tolerate poor soil conditions, so long as it is well draining.
Allow the soil to dry out before watering, and be careful to avoid getting water on the leaves. In winter, the plants will require more water, as winter begins its active growth season. If you are unsure when to water your Pachyphytum, watch the lower most leaves for signs of drying and water them then. Pachyphytum is far more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit under-full when they need water.
Pachyphytum oviferum is a prostrate succulent plant up to 4 inches tall and up to 12 inches wide with white stems bearing pale blue-green to bluish-purple rounded leaves in a rosette at the stems tips. The flowers, which appear in winter to early spring atop reddish 1 foot long stems, have red-orange petals surrounded by fleshy sepals the same color as the foliage
