Caring for a Crassula is a straightforward experience, as these succulents are low-maintenance and hardy. Want to know an incredible fact about Crassulas? They have the ability to undergo a physiological process called Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM). This allows them to open their stomata (tiny pores on the leaf surface) at night, when the air is cooler and more humid. It helps them to minimise water loss through transpiration. Then during the day, they keep their stomata closed to conserve water. So clever!
Crassula plants also propagate easily. You can grow new Crassulas from stem or leaf cuttings, creating a beautiful family of succulents to enjoy or share with loved ones.
The Crassula plants are also known for their air-purifying qualities, making them an excellent addition to your home or workspace.
