This beautiful stacked crassula is an easy plant. Its a small, branching shrublet with thick, triangular leaves, first found in rocky crevices in South Africa and Namibia.
The stems grow up to 12.0″ long and bend over the sides of trailing containers. Its leaves are framed in minty green with soft gray-green centers and when grown in bright sun, they can even develop a redness around the edges (like the last photo). Look for springtime clustered blooms of tiny white to pink blossoms.
Your plant will be similar to the one in the photos.
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.
