The Fairy Crassula, scientifically known as Crassula multicava, derives its name from the enchanting spray of pink flower buds that eventually bloom into delicate white star-shaped flowers. While the individual blooms may be small, each flower stem typically bears an impressive cluster of 30-40 flowers. Once the flowering phase is complete, the plantlets that form in the flower axils should be allowed to develop. These plantlets can either fall to the ground and grow independently or be separated and shared with friends and family.

This low-growing succulent, the Fairy Crassula, usually reaches a height of no more than 30cm, but it can spread widely with each bloom stem producing around 15-20 new plants. The appearance of its leaves may vary depending on the amount of light exposure, but they generally maintain a glossy, deep green color in shaded environments.

Originating from South Africa, the Fairy Crassula thrives in hot and arid climates. In Australian gardens, this can be easily replicated by combining sand with high-quality potting mix and allowing the plant to dry out between deep watering.

It’s important to note that Crassula species are susceptible to root rot and fungal diseases. Therefore, it is crucial to prevent the succulent from sitting in water. We recommend using a well-drained mixture of good-quality potting soil and sand to create an optimal growing environment.
