|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
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 Dorothea is an attractive miniature Crassula hybrid between the species Crassula deceptor and Crassula susannae. This probably spontaneous crossing is named after Dorothy Dunn who created this plant as an employee of a the cactus nursery where I rent my greenhouses and run my nursery. 'Dorothy' is a very slow growing cultivar with thick, densely stacked leaves. The rosettes are larger than those of Crassula susannae, but still quite small. With water the leaves are thick and fleshy. The white flowers appear in autumn and each rosette that is even hardly big enough develops an inflorescence, so the plant flowers abundantly.|
