Crassula ovata Variegated
The variegated Crassula ovata has a beautiful white and green striped coloration that takes on a 'blushing' of red with more sun and heat. The crassula is a shrub-like, succulent plant that grows in a stacking, rosette formation. Crassula prefers full sun, warm temperatures, and low humidity. In its native habitat it can be found growing on rocky hills and cliff sides.
Native to South Africa and Mozambique.
Crassula ovata variegated prefer bright light, ideally four to six hours of full sun. The more sun, the more variegation and 'blushing' can occur. They will grow in light shade but may become leggy without enough light.
Crassula is low-maintenance from a watering standpoint. Succulent leaves retain plenty of moisture so be sure to let the soil dry out completely in between waterings then water thoroughly, fully saturating the soil.
Crassula is easily propagated by stem and leaf cuttings. Allow the cut stems to callous prior to replanting into soil. Fertilize: Fertilize once every two weeks during the active growing season. This is limited to spring and summer in temperate climates.
Approx. 6-7" tall x 4-6" at the widest point. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
