  •  Crassula Red Pagoda, also known as Crassula Shark Tooth, is a fascinating succulent with pointed triangular leaves that are densely packed like origami. With maximum sun exposure, the foliage can turn from dark green to striking light yellow with red tips. Edgy and unique, this succulent is a great addition to any planter or rock garden.

     It can be grown as a small-scale groundcover, or on hanging basket due to its branching habit.

     In summer, it produces small starry white flowers.Some specimens are redder than others. The more sun you give it, the redder it gets. ‘Red Pagoda’s’ color is brightest in winter in response to short, cool nights and bright sunlight.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Healthy succ

As per usual, another healthy and good-looking plant from Succulents Box. The one I received didn't exactly look nicely stacked like the ones in the listing photos, but one thing I love about succulents is how they can change and transform in my care, and I'll get to see that transformation myself, as opposed to it doing that in a greenhouse. It was a bit etiolated, but that's normal. The plant itself is about 3" tall, and I received two of them. I ordered the 2" plant, and it came bare-root, so I planted it up right away and now waiting for it to unfurl after being in transit for a good five days. Also there were two of them in the box, so I'm very pleased with this. I can't wait to see how this beauty grows in my care.
