Description:

Crassula “Garnet Lotus” is a little, usually 1-stemmed succulent.

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”.

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:

Curiosity:

The name “Crassula” comes from the Latin “crassus”, which means fat.
