Jade plants need full sun to develop their full coloration. Water sparingly or abundantly. Reduce water in the winter
Crassula ovata is a spectacular slow growing cultivar close in appearance to the common jade plant but with green leaves . It is a many-branching succulent shrub with a stout trunk up to 120-180 cm tall. It bears pale-green, obovate pointed leaves . Leaves are often tipped with a pink margin on the new growth and when grown in the sun.
Given proper conditions, the Crassula will flower with small pink or white, star-shaped in apical clusters 5 to 7 cm across within the foliage in the late winter, making an attractive and mildly fragrant display.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.
You can fertilise your succulent once a month.
Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
