Description

Native to South Africa, the Crassula (aka Jade Plant) is a group of succulents made up of over 200 species. With thick, shiny leaves this plant will go on forever given just a little bit of care. Usually, a much darker green although some plants come through with tips of yellow and red, and change in the sunlight over time. These almost miniature trees are made up of lots of petal-like leaves. With just a little more height than our other succulent varieties, when grouped together you create height and texture to the feature. Planted in our signature black and gold pots, these Crassulas really will bring interest to wherever they are placed.

Brighten up the inside of your home with a Crassula. Read more on The Hot House for other plants that you can bring the outside in.

Plant Care

Do not water the leaves. A very tiny bit of water can be put under the leaves, straight into the soil. But we do not recommend doing this more than once a month. The moss can be kept fresh with a light sprinkling of water or a spray.

    Beautiful little Crassula (jade plant) in a gorgeous black and gold pot. Arrived well packaged.
    My only gripe is that it is topped with living moss which ideally needs a mist or daily water.
    Granted this isn’t a lot of water however, succulents need a dry environment and the lower leaves of my Crassula plant are constantly touching damp moss and I’ve noticed a couple are starting to shrivel up. It just seems quite contradictory to use moss which needs moisture to sit next to a succulent which needs the total opposite?

    Also, it’s worth noting that all succulents are sent in non draining pots which could cause an issue for drainage and wetness of soil!

      Crassula leaves generally shrivel if they are underwatered or getting too much sunlight. The moss is decorative but also allows the plant to retain the moisture it has. Watering consistently but small amounts will prove this little guy is a survivor of the succulent world. If you are seeing problems, please feel free to contact us and send photos of your plant, if you require more detailed care instructions. Our team are here to help hello@thelittlebotanical.com.
