IMPORTANT INFORMATION: |
We ship your plants mostly Bare root which means that some of the soil and the pot have been removed from the plant. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. This method allows lower freight rates and cleaner shipping.
We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on what time of year you purchase it and whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Crassula streyii, native to South Africa forms a subshrub of shiny deep forest green leaves patterned with lighter veining. The undersides of the leaves and stems are a shiny burgundy. Star-shaped satiny white flowers appear in late winter. Requires porous soil with excellent drainage. Grows in rocky quartz beds in native habitat. Water thoroughly when soil is dry. 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. They like filtered light. The leaves are green on top and mauve on the underside. Like most crassulas, they are winter growers and intolerant of frost. Offer light water in summer. If outdoors, fall through winter, water once a month or allow the rain to water your plants. It is best not to let them get too leggy. Propogate by cuttings. Cutting tops make new plants and parent plants fuller.
