About Crassula Ovata 'Gollum'

The perennial succulent Crassula Ovata 'Gollum' grows in the Mediterranean climate. It is a shrubby plant with conspicuous, rounded stems and a yellowish-brown or grayish-brown epidermis. It has alternate leaves, growing in dense clusters at the tips of the stems or branches, fleshy leaf cylinders, 4cm to 5cm long, obliquely truncated at the tips, usually elliptical in cross-section, and bright green in color with a yellowish tinge at the ends. Its leaves are somewhat peculiar and pleasantly colored when they bloom in winter.

How to care for Crassula Ovata 'Gollum'

Sun/Location: The succulent should be planted in a well-lit environment, as do all succulents. Shady conditions will cause the plant to loosen up and affect its beauty. In normal conditions, you can place it in a sunny spot to receive all-day sunlight, but in the hot summer months, you should avoid direct sunlight, or you may find that the leaves are sunburned and even melted.

Soil/Pot: A rotten leaf or grass charcoal soil is suitable for it, as these soils are loose, breathable, and lightly acidic. Choosing a pot that has good air permeability and a diameter 2x3 inches larger than the plant diameter will promote plant growth.

Watering: Although Crassula Ovata 'Gollum' is drought-tolerant, keeping the soil moist by watering more frequently during peak growth ensures the plant develops well. It is also essential to spray appropriately in the summer to effectively cool down and simultaneously increase humidity and reduce the effects of transpiration. Watering should be reduced in winter since the plant grows slowly.

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.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

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!!!
