    About Crassula 'Tom Thumb'

    Crassula 'Tom Thumb' belongs to the Crassulaceae family and is native to South Africa. It is similar to Crassula Marnieriana but distinguished by its more pronounced angular leaves. Crassula 'Tom Thumb' leaves are grayish-green to light green in color, with slightly red margins. When exposed to large temperature differences, the leaves can turn red. The leaf shape is ovate-triangular, with the bases connected. Overall, Crassula's 'Tom Thumb' resembles stars in the sky. Hence, its floral language is "dreamy."

    How to care for Crassula 'Tom Thumb'

    Sun/Temperature: Crassula 'Tom Thumb' can tolerate partial shade and prefers relaxed, dry environments. It can withstand temperatures as low as 30 ℉, but prolonged exposure to cold should be avoided. Insufficient sunlight can cause leggy spacing between leaves, while ample sunlight promotes compact growth. Therefore, providing much sunlight is essential, but shading and protection from strong sunlight and rain are necessary in summer to prevent sunburn and plant rot.

    Soil/Pot/Fertilizer: Crassula 'Tom Thumb' prefers well-draining soil and pots with drainage holes. When potting, you can use specialized succulent soil or a mixture of materials like perlite. Bath watering is suitable, but ensure the soil is dry before watering, especially in winter when watering should be reduced.

    Fertilizer: During spring and autumn, you can fertilize Crassula 'Tom Thumb' with succulent-specific fertilizer once a month. However,you have to reduces the frequency of fertilization during winter and summer.

    Propagation: Propagating Crassula 'Tom Thumb is easy with clippings. Use clean scissors or razor blades to remove stems with leaves attached from the parent succulent. After drying, the plug can be inserted directly into well-drained soil or perlite mixture, requiring only minimal watering after a few days.

    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.

    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.
