Habitat:

Crassula “Garnet Lotus” is a nursery-produced hybrid and doesn’t exist in nature.

Description:

Crassula “Garnet Lotus” is a little, usually 1-stemmed succulent. Unlike other Crassula nursery hybrids, it has only 1 stem and so only one rosette of bigger leaves, a few centimeters long (while leaves of many other Crassula nursery hybrids are a few millimeters long). These leaves have a light, greyish-bluish-green colour, often with tinges of yellow and purple. It’s precisely because of these tinges and for the flashy aspect o its unique rosette that it was given this name, “Garnet Lotus”.

Cultivation:

Crassula “Garnet Lotus”, as other Crassulas, is not so difficult to cultivate. It requires a well-draining, sandy substrate and a sunny spot. Water it moderately during Spring and Summer and reduce the number of interventions in Winter, keeping the soil dry. Temperatures should not descend below 5ºC.

Propagation:
