Crassula cultrata variegata, known as the Variegated Bush Plakkie, is a visually striking variegated form of Crassula cultrata. This succulent is highly prized for its unique and decorative appearance, featuring leaves with a mix of green, white, and sometimes pink hues, which enhance its appeal in succulent collections and ornamental displays.

The Variegated Bush Plakkie shares the robust, shrubby growth habit of its non-variegated counterpart, potentially reaching up to 1 meter (about 3 feet) in height. However, what sets it apart is the variegation in its leaves. The leaves are thick, fleshy, broadly ovate, and display a beautiful variegation pattern that can vary from leaf to leaf. The edges of the leaves may also turn reddish when the plant is exposed to bright sunlight or stress conditions, adding further to its ornamental value.

This variegated variety thrives under the same conditions as the standard Crassula cultrata, preferring well-draining soil and minimal watering to prevent root rot. It is best grown in bright, indirect light to maintain the variegation, although direct sunlight can enhance the colors and promote a healthy growth habit. However, too much direct sun can cause scorching of the leaves, so it’s important to find a balance that suits the specific environment.

Crassula cultrata variegata is ideal for use in rock gardens, succulent arrangements, and as a standout specimen in container gardens. Its slow-growing, compact nature makes it suitable for small spaces and as a low-maintenance indoor plant. While it may bloom with small, star-shaped flowers, the primary attraction of this succulent is its colorful, variegated foliage, which adds a splash of color to any setting.

Like many succulents, it can be propagated from leaf cuttings or offsets, allowing enthusiasts to share and spread this beautiful variegated variety. Care should be taken in colder climates, as it is frost-sensitive and may need protection or to be brought indoors during the winter months. The Variegated Bush Plakkie is a must-have for collectors seeking unique and visually appealing succulents.
