This sturdy tree, the Crassula Argentea, is also called Jade plant or Money tree. The succulent plant has a thick, woody stem with oval thick leaves.
BOTANY | The Crassula is a succulent plant that originates from South Africa. It grows there in sunny, dry areas.
PLANT CARE | Like most succulents, this Jade plant requires little care. Only water when the soil has dried for about 1 week in the warm months and 1 x every 6 weeks in the colder months. Do you want to grow the plant? Then give the Crassula a larger pot to give the roots room to grow. Repot the Crassula with well-draining soil. Give organic plant food once a year in the spring.
When you know where the plant originally comes from, you can imitate that environment at home or at work as closely as possible. Then your plant will feel completely at home in no time.
Be careful with over watering. With succulents in particular, an occasional splash of water is sufficient. When water remains at the bottom of the pot, root rot occurs and the plant usually does not survive this.
The kraft paper pot is waterproof for several weeks to months, depending on the water needs of the plant. The pot is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free. As soon as moisture spots appear in the soil, the pot is no longer watertight and it is best to repot the plant. After repotting, the pot can be handed in with the waste paper to be recycled.
