Propagation by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Late Summer

Crassulas can be grown from leaf cuttings taken in spring and summer. Pull a leaf from the main stem, leave it to dry for a day, then place it on the surface of the growing compost. The leaf will form roots and eventually, a small rosette will appear at the base. Remove and pot up the new plant when well rooted.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Crassulas need a sharply drained soil, such as 2 parts John Innes potting compost number 2 and 1 part course sand or grit. They do best on a sunny window ledge and in winter, require a minimum temperature of 7C. Repot every second year in early spring.
