Product Details

Highlights

Crassula rupestris var. monticola: An easy grower with a unique form. This soft succulent grows as a small, branching shrublet in rocky crevices in South Africa and Namibia. Its fleshy, triangular leaves are almost as thick as they are wide and spiral up long, narrow stems.

The leaves of C. rupestris v. monticola are a speckled green sharply outlined in reddish pink. When grown with plenty of sunlight, they can reach 9.0" long and spill nicely from arrangements. Look for spring blooms of tiny white to pink blossoms clustered into dense heads.

Like other soft succulents, C. rupestris v. monticola needs to be indoors before temperatures drop below freezing. It should be in a pot with a drainage with gritty, well-draining soil. Water deeply but only when the soil is dry and keep near a sunny window to maintain dense, colorful growth.

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.
