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 reachdown 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 rupestris ssp. marnieriana 'Baby Necklace' is a fun, attention getting plant that can be grown as a hanging basket subject or as a ground cover. This is a hybrid developed by Myron Kimnach, long time horticulturist and past editor of the Journal of the Cactus & Succulent Society of America, and also formerly of the Huntington Botanical Gardens. It is a cross of two South African succulents, Crassula perforata known as 'String of Buttons', with Crassula rupestris ssp. marnieriana. Baby Necklace is a very hardy and ornamental plant with small, rounded, fleshy leaves tightly stacked, and usually multicolored resembling a string of beads like on a necklace. This plant stays fairly small (6"-12"+ tall) and has excellent drought and cold tolerance though prefers some sun protection. Crassulas usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Provide porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
