Description

Pondo Cliff Crassula (Crassula streyi): An exotic, stemmed succulent with fascinating foliage. This subtropical species from South Africa has broad, glossy green leaves with striking, fuchsia to maroon undersides. The leaves have a glossy sheen and can show tiny dots of hydathodes.

It is a long-lived, slowing growing plant and makes an excellent houseplant. It can reach about 8.0″ tall, sometimes sprawling and sprouting roots from decumbent stems.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need ample sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite.

Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
