Crassula pyramidalis – thin form
This is a super interesting crassula weirdo, which grows long skinny stems of stacked leaves in a branching pattern. It is monocarpic, which means that each stem that blooms dies afterword. Most monocarpic plants leave you with plenty of offsets so you can keep your collection going, however this one tends to go all out with a full set of blooms. So, be sure to take frequent cuttings to have a better chance of keeping this one around. On the plus side, they look like fireworks when in bloom and they smell AMAZING.
Last 2 photos show this one side by side with the thin form so you can see the size difference.
Shown in 2′ pot
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.
