Description

Crassula mesembryanthemoides is a member of the Crassulaceae family and is native to South Africa. The plant gets its common name, Pig’s Ear Crassula, from its large pointed leaves that resemble a pig’s ear. The leaves are a light green colour with a velvet like texture and can reach up to 10cm in diameter. It will work brilliantly in a pot or as a specimen plant due to it’s branching growth form. This succulent produces small, white or pink flowers in the summer months that attract pollinators.

It is an easy-to-care-for plant that prefers bright, indirect light and well-draining soil. It should be watered when the soil has completely dried out and is tolerant of periods of drought.
