Crassula Capitella Turrita
Another stunning little succulent from the Crassula family, growing in a unique stacked geometric pattern, this is a rarer species.
Size: 12cm high
Light: Choose a spot with bright indirect light or early morning/late afternoon sun. Always remember when placing a plant by a window that the sun's rays are strengthened when passing through glass and could damage the plant.
Water: As succulents store water in their leaves it's important not to overwater them, allow top layers of soil to dry out before watering and always ensure there's adequate drainage. Never allow a plant to sit in a pot of water as it will encourage root rot. Water less in cooler months.
Temperature: Average room temperature is fine, provide an even environment by avoiding draughts and intermittent heat sources.
Humidity: No additional humidity requirements
Feed: Crassula don't have the feeding requirements of most plants, a suitable feed, diluted to half strength only needs to be given annually in mid spring when they start actively growing.
Care tips: As a general rule, all Crassula are considered toxic to pets.
