Crassula rupestris 'High Voltage' is a succulent with fleshy, triangular green leaves with red margins and a vertical growth habit. These Crassula are a highly branching species and offset easily, making it the perfect plant for hanging baskets or along the edges of rock gardens, where they will readily form dense clusters of stems.
It requires bright light and an especially porous growing medium, as it typically grows in rocky quartz fields in its native South African habitat. Supplementing a cactus soil mix with perlite or course sand, coupled with infrequent but thorough watering, can help replicate this natural environment. Excessive dampness in the soil and the air can predispose these plants to rot, so take care not to overwater (especially in the cooler winter months) and to ensure ample airflow around the leaves. It's not cold hardy, and needs to be protected from frost.
These plants go dormant in the summer months, but during their growth season will send up clusters of tiny white flowers, which are known to attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
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!
