Jade "Crosby's Compact" - 4"
Botanical Name: Crassula Ovata
***Available for in-store pickup only!!***
This variety of Jade is like a miniaturized version of the standard Crassula ovata. It will remain more compact over time than a standard jade. This South African succulent doesn't need much attention at all. Just put it in a bright location. Wait till the top of the soil is dry before watering because succulent plants store water. It branches naturally, so it doesn't need much pruning.
Slow-growing, Jade only needs repotted when it outgrows its container, probably every 2-3 years. Also, be sure to use a container with a drainage hole to keep the soil from getting soggy.
Light: Bright light with some direct sun.
Water: Allow soil to dry out slightly between waterings, but don't allow the soil to get completely dry. Dropped leaves or brown spots on leaves are signs that the plant needs more water.
