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.
Soil: 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.
Light: Minimum of 3 hours direct sunlight per day
Water: 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.
Temperature: Average summer temperatures from 65ºF/18ºC to 70ºF/21ºC are ideal. In winter, it can survive temperatures as low as 50ºF/10ºC.
Fertilizer: Feed with a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season.
Propagation: 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.
USDA Zone 9b: to -3.8 °C (25 °F)
USDA Zone 10a: to -1.1 °C (30 °F)
USDA Zone 10b: to 1.7 °C (35 °F)
USDA Zone 11: above 4.5 °C (40 °F)
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. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.
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.
