Description

Crassula sarmentos 'Comet' or  Variegated Trailing Jade  is a scrambling  succulent plant  that grows up to 1' tall and branches sparingly from the base with 3' long reddish stems that arches outwards and upwards or trail down. The stems bear up to 1 inch long ovate mid-green colored leaves that have finely serrated cream colored margins the leaves have brighter green color with red highlights along the white margins when grown in full sun. Terminal rounded compact panicles of pink buds open to pure white flowers in late fall.

Environment

Variegated Crassula plants need full sun to develop their full coloration. Avoid direct blasting sun in mid summer (with sun exposure the leaf develops a nice brownish tint), they do not do well in full shade as they tend to etiolate, fall over and rot easily.

They like well drained soils with easy access to moisture through addition of plenty of organic matter.Keep watered in summer - they do not like drying out for long.. Reduce water in the winters.

Landscape Use

Excellent in hanging baskets or cascading over container edges.They also go perfectly in rockeries and make good liners to pathways or spilling over the edge of larger planters when combined with other plants.

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

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.
