Crassula rupestris ssp. commutata 'Tom Thumb'


Product Details


'Tom Thumb' (Crassula rupestris ssp. commutata) (Tölken): A miniature stacked Crassula. This dwarf succulent originated in Namibia and South Africa and is well-adapted to hot, dry rocky slopes. Its thick, triangular leaves stay under 0.4" long but store enough water to help the plant endure extended drought.

'Tom Thumb' grows best in bright sunlight and the light helps its leaves show their fine red margins. It thrives in well-draining pots and gritty soil, only occasionally needing a deep watering when the soil is fully dry.

This freely branching shrublet will stay small in a pot, though it can eventually reach over 6.0" long and spill beautifully from arrangements. From spring to mid-summer, 'Tom Thumb' can display neat clusters of tiny white flowers.
