Crassula namaquensis subs. comptonii
Tiny low spreading crassula with short hairs covering the leaves for a fuzzy effect. Grows naturally in a rocky exposed setting, and needs tons of sun and sparing water to look it’s best. Don’t water much in the summer, it goes dormant at this time. Generally wants less water and higher drainage than other crassulas. Tiny relative of Crassula tecta.
Use a very well draining soil mix. Store bought cactus and succulent mix often retains too much water. You can add gritty materials like pumice, lava rock, or perlite to loosen it up and improve drainage. Your mix should be at least half gritty ingredients. Use a pot with drain holes so the soil can dry out.
Soak your plants thoroughly, then let them dry out completely before watering again. Frequency will depend on your climate. Check for dryness by sticking your finger into the top of the soil, or looking into the drain holes at the bottom of the pot.
Bare Root Shipping
Most of our plants ship bare root to save on shipping cost. This means the plant will not include a pot or soil. Some plants are shipped in the pot to avoid damage.
