Crassula Buddha's Temple

Crassula Buddha's Temple

  • Position: bright, direct light

  • Soil: freely draining potting compost

  • Rate of growth: slow

  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)

    The grey-green, scale-like leaves of this unusual succulent are tightly packed - one on top of the other - and gently curled at their tips. As the plant grows, quite distinctive square-shaped columns are formed, which become branching as the plant matures.

  • Home care: During the growing season, water thoroughly (making sure the excess water drains away freely) whenever the compost begins to dry out, then water very sparingly in winter.
