15 - 25cm Crassula Marginalis Succulent in Hanging 15cm Pot
Crassula Marginalis is a beautiful and popular succulent that is known for its distinctive, stacked leaves that grow in tight rosettes. It is also known as the “Propeller Plant” due to the shape of its leaves, which resemble propellers. Here are some care tips for keeping your Crassula Marginalis healthy:
Light: Crassula Marginalis prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can burn the leaves. Place the plant near a south- or west-facing window for optimal light exposure.
Water: Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, as overwatering can lead to root rot. During the winter, when the plant is dormant, water less frequently.
Soil: Crassula Marginalis prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. A mixture of potting soil, sand, and perlite is a good choice.
Temperature: Crassula Marginalis prefers warm temperatures between 60-80°F (16-27°C). It can tolerate cooler temperatures but should be kept away from drafts and cold windows.
Humidity: Crassula Marginalis does not require high humidity and can thrive in normal household humidity levels.
Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Propagation: Crassula Marginalis is easy to propagate from stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem, let it dry out for a few days, and plant it in moist soil.
Pests: Crassula Marginalis is generally pest-resistant, but can occasionally be affected by mealybugs or spider mites. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.
Overall, Crassula Marginalis is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to care for and adds a unique and beautiful touch to any collection of succulents.
