Scientific Name: Crassula muscosa 'Watch Chain'
Synonyms: Watch Chain Plant, Princess Pine, Clubmoss Crassula, Zipper Plant and Rattail Crassula

  • Striking foliage
  • Super easy care
  • Waterwise
  • Made to handle neglect
  • Sweet musky scented blooms
  • Indigenous to South Africa 

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. 

For more Plant options check out our Balcony and Patio or Easy Care Plant Collections.

To make a statement with your Watch Chain Crassula, consider these styling tips:

Follow these care tips to keep your Crassula happy & healthy.

  • Water: Allow your Crassula to reach complete dryness. Avoid letting the soil stay wet for too long, as this can lead to rot.
  • Light: Bright Indirect to Direct sunlight is best.
  • Humidity: No humidity adjustments are required.
  • Fertilise: Feed during Spring and Summer with a slow-release fertiliser every 6 weeks. No need to feed in Winter.
