The Watch Chain Crassula is a unique-looking specimen, with tightly clustered delicate foliage, that looks very similar to the tight links of a watch chain. The foliage is most often erect, however, will trail down once the foliage grows longer and gets heavy.

This crassula is the ideal option for hanging near a bright window, outdoors in the garden, on your Patio or for popping on a hot bright windowsill. It'll add drama and character to any plant collection, be you a newbie or an advanced plant collector. They will also bloom delicate whitish to cream flowers during midsummer and will fill your home with a musky sweet scent.

Crassula is indigenous to South Africa, adding to their tolerance of dry hot conditions. This is the perfect houseplant for a hot, sunny space indoors or out. Best of all their watering needs are relatively low, making them super Waterwise specimens.

Water only when the potting soil has reached complete dryness, and be sure to reduce your watering frequency in Winter. When it comes to light, the Crassula will tolerate filtered bright light, however, they will thrive best in some direct sunlight.
