Crassula plegmatoides - SIX SIDED!

Normally crassulas have 2 pairs of leaves, making a ‘four-sided’ plant. Very rarely a stem will have a random mutation and form 3 sets of leaves, becoming ‘six-sided’.

This is a very rare Crassula with smooth and rounded neatly stacked leaves. It grows up to 6′ tall, and as the stems get longer they tend to lean over and curve. As it grows also sends out new stems from the base. You can propagate it easily by cutting the stem.

Soil
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. 

Water
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.
