Crassula Falcata, also known as Propeller Plant is an interesting succulent with blue-grey propeller-shaped leaves arranged in overlapping pattern. It is also called "Airplane Plant" because of its wing-like shape.
In summer, it produces amazing dense clusters of scarlet red flowers that attract birds and bees. Its unique shape makes it an ornamental indoor plant.
The 4" ones are huge and super tall so we will only ship cuttings, meaning without root and dirt, to ensure the plant can travel safely.
It makes a perfect compliment to your succulent collection and is very easy to care for. Can be grown in sun or shade outdoors, or as a houseplant in a sunny window. Fantastic in succulent combination planters.
All of the plants may be shipped bare root.
Porous and well-drained. Optimal pH is around 6.0 (slightly acidic). We recommend regular mixes for cacti and succulents, mixture of regular potting soil, bird sand and pumice.
Minimum of 3 hours direct sunlight per day.
If kept indoors, it needs very little water (allow the soil to dry out thoroughly between waterings). Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases.
Feed with a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.
You can propagate Crassula Falcata by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. The easiest way is to propagate from a single leaf: put the leaf in a succulent or cacti mix, then cover until it sprouts.
Average summer temperatures from 65ºF/18ºC to 70ºF/21ºC are ideal. In winter, it can survive temperatures as low as 50ºF/10ºC.
Generally non-toxic to humans and animals

*** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.
*** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
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.
