Tacitus is the perfect plant if you don’t have green fingers.
From March 2018 Thoruplund start the selling of Graptopetalum bellum, also known as the Tacitus. It is a perennial succulent native to west Mexico. Tacitus has star-shaped rosettes, ornate green leaves and deep pink flowers. The pointed, triangular leaves form a regular, silver-grey rosette so perfect that it is hard to imagine that nature created it without help.
Tacitus bellus has got it all. A beautiful, graphically simple and live sculpture to you from nature. A simple plant in a simple bowl is both beautiful and cool. Organise the plants in a row of uniform glass flower pots or containers to create both a sculptural and spectacular arrangement.
Tacitus is the perfect plant if you don’t have green fingers. It tolerates drying out completely and should not be watered until the potting soil is dry. Feed it a little once a month from March to October. Do not feed it the rest of the year. It loves a bright position at room temperature, preferably out of direct sunlight.
