Crassula conjuncta, native to Africa, forms stems with leaves arranged in offsetting ranks. Stems elongate to form large "string of buttons". Leaves are triangular in shape, glaucous bluish-green in color and are margined with bright red. Offsets freely to form large clusters that are excellent for rock gardens or hanging baskets. Crassulas require very porous soil with excellent drainage. In habitat, Crassulas usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring.
Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
