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. 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. Temperature: Average summer temperatures from 65ºF/18ºC to 70ºF/21ºC are ideal. In winter, it can survive temperatures as low as 50ºF/10ºC.
