We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reach down for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Crassula capitella 'Campfire', native to Africa, forms branching stems with light green leaves that morph through shades of yellow and orange, progressing to a bright red at the tips. The overall effect makes the plant look back lit as if it were a pile of glowing embers in a slow burning campfire. Leaves color up best in bright light, drought or cold temperatures. Offsets quickly to form wide mats. Excellent color accent in rock gardens or as a groundcover. Crassulas require very porous soil with excellent drainage. In habitat, usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring. Vibrant Deep orange and rust colors. They are winter growers and intolerant of frost. Offer light water in summer. If outdoors, fall through winter, water once a month or allow the rain to water your plants. Propogate by stem cuttings. Cutting tops make new plants and parent plants fuller.
