Crassula tetragona 'Miniature Pine Tree'

Size

It is truly no question where Crassula tetragona 'Miniature Pine Tree' received its common name, as the bright green leaves closely resemble the needles of a pine tree! While it can reach up to several feet in height when grown outdoors in a temperate climate resembling that of its native South Africa, indoor specimens tend to stay far more compact. An excellent succulent for beginners, ‘Miniature Pine Tree’ can tolerate a fair deal of neglect – in fact, it would much rather skip a watering than be overwatered!

If you do not reside in Zone 10 or above, plan to keep this variety as a houseplant, placing it in a very bright windowsill or other location in your home. While ‘Miniature Pine Tree’ can tolerate partially shaded conditions for some time, it will experience more stunted growth and is far less likely to produce its characteristic white blooms in the absence of more direct sunlight.

To avoid issues with rot and pests, take care to water thoroughly but infrequently, giving the plant a drink only once the soil has had a chance to completely dry through. A porous soil mixture, a well-draining pot, and ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface will take you the rest of the way toward a happy, healthy ‘Miniature Pine Tree.’
