Crassula is a genus of succulent plants that includes more than 350 species native to many different parts of the world. Crassula species vary in sizes, some are short ground covers, some are trailing plants ideal for hanging baskets while some living in warm climates can grow into 6-foot shrubs. Crassula plants will bloom in spring and summer.
Crassulas make great houseplants and are perfect to grow in containers thanks to their easy growing habit, low maintenance, evergreen and eye-catching nature, Many make excellent indoor plants, use others in landscaping.
Most Crassula plants prefer shade but they also need bright light to get a vibrant color. If you plant Crassula outdoor, place where they get morning sun and afternoon shade is ideal. Placed in full sun, the leaves can scald, though it won't kill the plant.
It’s important to provide porous soil with adequate drainage. However, crassulas are not picky when it comes to soil pH. They will do well in sandy or even rocky soil.
Water thoroughly only when the soil is dry to the touch (about every 2 weeks). Never let your succulents sit in water and do NOT water on the leaves.Don't forget to learn how to water your succulents the right way.
You can water more often if you live in areas with hot weather because your soil will dry out faster. Reduce watering in winter because the succulent can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for an extended amount of time. Make sure to protect from frost to prevent scarring.
Feed sparingly. You can give your plants a little organic fertilizer in mid-spring, as they start actively growing.
You can propagate crassulas by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. The easiest way is to propagate from a single leaf: placing the leaf into a succulent or cacti mix, then covering the dish until they sprout.
