Plant Care Guide
As with most succulents, Crassulas grow best in full sun or partial shade. In hot summers, more shade may be necessary.
Crassulas are very drought-tolerant and require the soil to mostly dry out between waterings. However, if plants go too long without water their leaves will shrivel and pucker.
Level of Care
Easy! Just place in bright sunlight and don't overwater.
Crassulas remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild cactus fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Crassulas are generally more cold hardy than other succulents, but for best results keep within a range of 40-100°F. Grown outdoors, Cotyledons are hardy in USDA zones 6-11.
When repotting the succulents, use a well-draining Cacti/Succulent Potting Mix for best results.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune damaged areas by cutting to the branch. To propagate, plant cuttings in soil.
Sorry! Crassulas are mildly toxic if consumed by pets. Love succulents? Play it safe and opt for an Echeveria or other pet-friendly plant.
