Product Details

Highlights

Crassula rubricaulis (Ecklon & Zeyher): A shrubby succulent with long, flattened leaves. Sunlight transforms its coloration, bringing out vibrant red tones. It produces clusters of tiny pale blossoms in mid-summer. At maturity, this South African species reaches about 16.0" tall.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need ample sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

Crassula can show tiny white or black dots on their leaves. These are healthy, water-transferring pores called "hydathodes" and not a sign of disease.
