Laughing Buddha with Crassula Campfire - Plant
Description for Laughing Buddha with Crassula Campfire
Crassula capitella or the Campfire Plant is a perennial succulent plant native to southern Africa.
Crassula are easy to grow, but they are susceptible to mealy bugs and fungal diseases. As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet. Never let your Crassula sit in water. 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.
Easy-to-grow, branching succulent displays dramatic, fleshy, propeller-like leaves that mature from light green to bright red. Forms spreading mats, useful in rock gardens and containers. Clusters of lightly fragrant white flowers rest on the leaves in the summer.
