About Crassula Pellucida

Plants in the Crassula genus are amazingly diverse and come in an incredible assortment of sizes and colors. Many of the ones we grow today are native to a small region in South Africa, which makes that diversity even more amazing! They're super low maintenance plants that can handle long periods of drought, so great if you're prone to skipping waters (we won't tell). 🫢 Make sure they get plenty of sunlight and that they're planted in a pot with a drainage hole and they'll be happy as can be!

So basically when I first got this plant it was really dark like greeny purple. Then it just stayed like that for about a year then I started watering it more and putting it on my windowsill so it got a load of water and light which made its go vibrant green and it grew lots more right down the side of the pot. This plant is a survivor but loves to have a bit of tlc❤️. I recommend for beginner plant parents.
