It is perfect for hanging baskets or to spill over rock walls or path edges. Calico Kitten is a tender soft succulent and will not tolerate frost.

    This crassula blooms flowers with shades of rose/mauve, pale yellow or green in late spring to early summer.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Full Sun, Sun to Partial Shade, Light Shade.

    Porous and well-drained. Optimal pH is around 6.0 (slightly acidic).

    Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging: https://succulentsbox.com/pages/shipping-return-policy

    *** 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.

Beautiful on arrival

They were beautiful on arrival , so lush and green. I followed instructions let roots dry for 2 days before planting in good cactus soil. Then waited a few days before light watering. I have only one green sprig standing the rest turned dark & died.

Wonderful business to deal with

Wonderful, but I didn’t get a plant called a Calico Kitten but did get a small pot with soil that was broken that was degsinated for a Calico Kitten. You graciously replaced all the pots that were broken. Can’t wait to get some more money to buy more.
