Crassula Ovata 'Money Maker'
South Africa & Mozambique
Crassula swaziensis 'Money Maker' is a shrubby, branching succulent with thick stems and fleshy, obovate leaves. Unlike most jade plants, 'Money Maker' has soft, velvety hairs covering its leaves. It usually grows to 3.0" tall and spreads to 6.0" wide, but it also takes well to bonsai pruning.
Crassula is easy to grow in a container, best in full sun but will tolerate part sun. It needs well-drained soil with a neutral pH. Water regularly from spring to autumn and allow the soil to dry out before watering again. During the winter months, water only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling. A most common reason for failure is over watering.
It can be used as an ornamental plant.
