Crassulaceae - Crassulas

Click on photographs for enlargements and additional plant growing information

Crassula - There are approximately 130 different crassulas, the most common of which is the jade plant. They are winter growers and have beautiful pink flowers. I allow the rainfall to water my crassulas in winter. During times when we don't have rain I water every 2 weeks. I let my plants tell me what they need. Crassula leaves shrivel when they need water, so watch and see. Let your plants tell you what they need. Spring -Fall fertilize once a month. Crassula are made up of basically two groups. The shrubby group, which includes the Jade Plants. The other group includes smaller types and miniatures, and will be discussed here. These plants, for the most part, are very tiny and slow growing with hidden stems covered with thickened, hardened, stacked leaves. Crassulas prefer very porous soil, and it is preferable to drench them well and allow the soil to dry somewhat between waterings. They enjoy cool summer conditions, good light, and good air circulation. High heat in the summer, when they are dormant, will often cause lower leaves to drop. Crassula need winter warmth and will sit and sulk if kept damp and cold. The very succulent types must be watered quite sparingly as they store water in their highly succulent leaves and will rot if over-watered. A very little amount of diluted fertilizer mixed with water infrequently (once a month or less frequently) suits them.
