|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 '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.
