Caring for Crassula Hobbit
- During the winter months, water only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling. Most common reason for failure is overwatering! Propagating is achieved with leaf or stem cuttings which are placed into a soil mix, then wait until they show some growth.
Before placing them in soil mix you will prevent potential problems from the sap seeping out by allowing them to dry on a windowsill, for a few days or so. Mealybugs, vine weevil and aphids
