Crassula ‘Buddha’s Temple’ is a very interesting succulent plant. In time it will grow about up to 6 inches (15 cm) tall and start branching at varying levels from the sides of each column. The flat, thin leaves are silvery-grey to grayish-green in color. They are stacked tightly and folded up at the edges, forming a perfectly square column about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter. It develops the most wonderful spherical red, orange or white flower stuck to the top of the plant.
How to Grow and Care
Crassula are easy to grow, but they are susceptible to mealy bugs and fungal diseases. As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet. Never let your Crassula sit in water. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. Crassula are generally started by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. Plants can be easily propagated from a single leaf: sprout leaves by placing them into a succulent or cacti mix, then covering the dish until they sprout. Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot a succulent, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot…. – See more at: How to Grow and Care for Crassula.
