Description

Crassula perforata ‘Variegata’ is a variegated form of Crassula perforata. It is relatively fast growing, somewhat shrubby and sprawling plant, up to 18 inches (46 cm) tall. The leaves are up to 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. Variegated leaves are gathered at the top of the plant and the lower leaves lose their variegation. It blooms with inconspicuous pale yellow inconspicuous flowers in spring.

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. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. Treat any cuts with a fungicide… – See more at: How to Grow and Care for Crassula.
