If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. 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 different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Crassula rupestris ssp. rupestris x ssp. marnieriana variety tom thumb

Crassula 'Tom Thumb' is a charming miniature plant with tiny triangular leaves in opposing ranks on stems. The tiny mint green leaves have colorful reddish edges especially in bright light. It is topped by clusters of tiny white flowers in spring. Similar to Crassula perforata, ‘Tom Thumb’ is thought to be a hybrid cross as described in the Lexicon of Succulent Plants by Hermann Jacobsen as a cross between Crassula rupestris ssp. rupestris and Crassula rupestris ssp. marnieriana. Crassula "Jade Necklace" is considered a hybrid between Crassula falcata ("Propeller Plant") and Crassula marnieriana. Forms shrubby stems with short, ovate grayish-green triangular leaves. Leaves are very fleshy and margined with rose-red in bright light. Leaves are arranged along the stem in opposing pairs, with some resemblance to portions of a necklace. 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. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring.
