Crassula picturata


Crassula picturata, also known by the common name of ‘Tiger Jade,’ is a unique dwarf succulent characterized by its stacked rosettes of narrow, olive green leaves, speckled with red dots and edged in fine hairs along the margins. When adequately stressed, either through bright sunlight or cooler temperatures, the leaves will deepen to a rich maroon hue, upping the drama even further!

Like all Crassula, this variety has relatively straightforward care needs, the most critical of which are consistent access to bright light and protection from overwatering. As such, be sure to place this succulent in a sunny south or west-facing window, and pot within a porous soil mixture with ample drainage. Water thoroughly but infrequently, waiting until the soil has become completely dry before providing another drink – and take care to water the soil directly, rather than pouring the water over the plant where it could settle between the leaves.

During the late summer and fall months, small white or pink flowers will emerge from red buds situated atop a hairy bloom stalk, adding to the plant’s exotic appearance. As the weather transitions into the cool temperatures of winter, take care to shield this tender variety from frost.

Plant Size & Appearance
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
