Crassula Capitella

Crassula capitella ‘Campfire’ is a hardy, evergreen, small, branching succulent that has prostrate and fleshy propeller-shaped leaves. The foliage is lime-green with red tips. If you plant it in full sun and limit the water the leaves turn bright red


Caring For Crassula Capitella

1) Light: Campfire crassula plants need plenty of direct sunlight but can tolerate some shade or partial shade, too. In full sun, they’ll develop a deep red color that is really beautiful. However, if you can only give it morning sun or dappled light, the leaves will be deep green at the base with lighter red markings – which is also fine

2) Water: You should water your plants sparingly during their active growing phase, in spring and summer. Increase the frequency during hot weather and less during winter when they’re semi-dormant

3) Soil: These plants need well-drained soil and do best in potting mixes without peat or other moisture-retentive components. Use topsoil mixed with perlite, sharp sand, pea gravel and/or chicken grit to create a planting mix that will drain quickly

4) Temperature and Humidity: Although crassula Campfire can tolerate cool temperatures, they perform best when the daytime temperature is above 65 degrees Fahrenheit. But a temperature range of 65°-85° F (18°-29° C) is the most preferable. In winter, they can tolerate short periods of cold down to about 50 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 degrees Celsius) but you should protect your plants from frost by bringing them indoors or placing them in a sheltered spot

5) Fertilizer: These plants don’t need regular fertilizing but can benefit from a light application of a balanced fertilizer every 2-3 months. Just fertilize with a weak solution of liquid fertilizer (half-strength) about once a month in spring and summer when they’re actively growing
