Crassula 'Tom Thumb'

Size

Crassula 'Tom Thumb' , a delicate, fast growing succulent forms nearly vertical branches replete with bright green, stacked leaves that will flush red around the margins when appropriately ‘sun stressed.’ Resembling a miniature ‘String of Buttons,’ this variety puts on dense, draping growth that scarcely reaches 6 inches tall and wide, making for a stunning addition to a windowsill or as a ‘filler’ component in a succulent fairy garden!

Well suited for beginner and seasoned succulent growers alike, ‘Tom Thumb' has straightforward care requirements. This variety needs plenty of bright to filtered light along with ample airflow, porous soil with adequate drainage, and thorough watering when the soil is completely dry. Hardy only to Zone 10, take care to protect this plant from frost to avoid permanently scarring its petite, water-filled leaves. Extra measures should be taken during the cooler months to avoid excess moisture around the leaves and soil surface, as this can predispose the plant to rot, fungi, or pests such as mealy bugs.

During the spring months, tiny white blooms will emerge from the tip of each stem, adding to the plant’s delicate and whimsical appeal!
