About Crassula Rupestris (4 inch)

The name "Crassula Rupestris" is derived from its habitat and plant characteristics. "Crassula" is the genus name, meaning "thick." "Rupestris" comes from the Latin "rupes," meaning "rock," referring to the plant's habit of typically growing in crevices of rocks. Leafless leaves emerge from the stem nodes of Crassula Rupestris. The leaves of Crassula Rupestris are thick and gray-green in texture, with striking red margins. The leaves of Crassula rupestris are coated with a delicate layer of white powder and tiny hairs on both sides. In winter and early spring, it produces beautiful white to red flowers.

How to care for Crassula Rupestris (4 inch)

Sun/Temperature: Crassula Rupestris can thrive in partial shade or full sunlight, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor cultivation. If grown outdoors, it should be protected from intense sunlight. The optimal temperature range for Crassula Rupestris is 65-80°F, and it is not frost-tolerant, so indoor temperatures should be maintained at 40-50°F during winter.

Soil/Watering: It can be planted in well-draining succulent soil or a mixture of pumice and perlite with sand for rocky succulents. This helps provide good drainage and prevents water accumulation. Be careful not to overwater, as it may cause root rot. Wait until the soil is dry before watering moderately. Watering frequency can be reduced in winter. Potted plants require more frequent watering than those planted in the ground.

Propagation: Crassula rupestris is commonly propagated by stem cuttings. This method involves using scissors or a knife to cut a stem with attached leaves from the parent plant. Allow the wound to dry before planting the cutting in potting soil.

Fertilization: It has low fertilizer requirements but can benefit from diluted succulent fertilizer monthly during summer. Be careful not to splash the leaves with fertilizer, which may affect plant growth.

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!!!
