Crassula muscosa ' Watch Chain' (Princess Pine)
Succulent houseplants are popular plants for window sills, brighten desks and other indoor spaces where you can show them off. Great for weddings! Protect from frost.
A small succulent plant with tiny light green leaves, densely packed around the thin stem, forming a square mass. It grows as an intricate bush up to 12" tall. The flowers are little and yellow-green. Overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.
A great plant for living wreaths, containers or as a small-scale ground cover in a rock or succulent garden. Do not over-water. A light misting of water with a spray bottle once or twice a week is adequate for most succulents.
Succulents are FAR more likely to survive under-watering than over-watering. The thick fleshy leaves will appear wilted and a bit “under-full” when they need water.
Dry soil is necessary. Succulents should be potted in a fast-draining mixture that’s designed for cacti and succulents. Modifying basic potting mix with approximately half potting mix to half Perlite or Vermiculite.
Perfect as a houseplant.
