Description:

Beautiful succulent plant that forms small colonies, made up of pretty compact rosettes of clam-shaped leaves, closely intertwined almost like an elegant flower. Each leaf has a beautiful emerald green color, often tinged with purplish or reddish hues when exposed to the sun, enriched with thick white hairs that covers the entire skin and give it an even more elegant appearance, simultaneously protecting it from atmospheric agents. That's not all, the hairy leaf layer guarantees that the plant retains as much water as possible, which is essential in periods of severe drought typical of the areas from where it comes from. The charm of Crassula tomentosa is accentuated throughout the summer, when pleasant yellowish-white flowers bloom, that will give a touch of liveliness to any of your surroundings!

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 7 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well draining and porous one, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
