Happy Cactus Monday
I think that Crassula's are one of nature's greatest works of art. They come in so many different sizes and shapes. I have no idea how many kinds there are but quite a lot. Here are pictures of a few that I have or have had (boo hoo).
Crassula argentea Finger Jade
I love this type of jade plant. The leaves are shaped kind of like a regular jade but are slightly curled. I have a lot of trouble with jade plants in the ground over winter. They can take a little cold but once it starts freezing they are pretty much done for.
Crassula's are propogated by leaf or stem cuttings. A lot of times you will just find little babies growing at the base of your plant because leaves have fallen down and rooted.
One of my favorites but hard to keep alive Crassula capitella ssp. thyrsiflora. The next picture I post will be the flowers. So tiny and pretty. Can't seem to find the right conditions for this cool crassula.
Here's the flowers for you! Aren't they pretty!
This is a plant in the crassula family. I am adding it cause the flowers are so cool. The next picture will show it. This one is called Monanthes polyphylla.
Crassula perforata variegata
Well that is all for now! I have a lot more so I will have to do a Crassula post #2.
Have a great week everyone!
