About Crassula Rupestris

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!

I got this plant as a freebie online while ordering another plant. This thing survived transit, and still gave me two rounds of blooms over the summer!! It’s easy to tell when it needs water because the bottom leaves get a slight squish to them. I have it right in front of my southwest facing window and it’s so happy :)
