Crassula pyramidalis – Mini Buddha’s Temple
Tight little stacks of leaves that get up to 4″ tall. These are very small – seriously tiny. They grow sooo many offsets (which sometimes come off in shipping). This is a tiny plant which grows very slowly, and will stay small. Great for those short on space.
Any offsets that fall off will root very easily when planted in soil.
Fun fact – the larger Buddha’s Temple is a hybrid between this plant and another one.
2″ pot – extra tiny
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.
