About Crassula Ovata 'Gollum'

Crassula Ovata 'Gollum' (Gollum Jade) hails from South Africa and boasts distinctive physical characteristics. Its leaves are oval-shaped, but unlike traditional Crassula Ovata, their tips curl inward, resembling the fingers of the character Gollum from "The Lord of the Rings." The plant typically displays a verdant green color, with occasional reddish tinges along the leaf margins. Its stems are prone to forming old stumps.

How to care for Crassula Ovata 'Gollum'

Sun/Temperature: This succulent thrives in ample sunlight, with the optimal temperature ranging from 60°F to 80°F. Despite its heat tolerance, it should be shielded from direct exposure to intense sunlight to prevent leaf scorching. It is not cold-hardy, with a minimum tolerance temperature of 40°F.

Soil/Watering: Use well-draining soil mixed with sand or gravel to ensure swift water drainage. Water the plant only when the soil is arid to prevent root rot. Typically, watering once a week is sufficient.

Pot: o prevent water from pooling, make sure the pot has proper drainage holes. Since jade trees are upright growing plants and tend to lignify and branch easily, it is recommended to choose a pot with a moderate depth and sufficient capacity, which can provide enough space for the tree to grow and branch.

Pest and Disease: Crassula Ovata 'Gollum' is susceptible to aphids, red spider mites, and black spot disease. Treatment options include spraying with soapy water or using insecticides.

Propagation: Propagation is achieved through stem cuttings. Healthy stem segments should be cut, dried to facilitate wound healing, and inserted into the soil. Spring and summer are optimal seasons for this propagation method.

It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
