Habitat:

Crassula ‘Ivory Pagoda’ is a nursery-produced hybrid and doesn’t exist in nature.

Description:

Crassula ‘Ivory Pagoda’ is a very slow growing hybrid between C. falcata and C. barklyi made in 1962 by Myron Kimnach in USA. It’s a dwarf succulent whose stems forms many peculiar “Ivory columns” because of the densely stacked leaves which hide the stems completely. Leaves are fleshy, grey-green with a whitish hair on the lowest page, curved upwards and somehow triangular-shaped. This hybrid has been created especially for the pretty aspect of its foliage and blossomings are not so frequent.

Cultivation:

Crassula “Ivory Pagoda” is not so difficult to grow. Pay attention to watering: interventions should be moderate and frequent in Spring and Summer and reduced and scarce in Winter, to avoid root rotting. This plant requires a bright spot, plenty of light or either half light. It’s better to keep it indoors to avoid frost damages: temperatures below 5ºC should be avoided.

Propagation:

This plant produces many offsets in the shape of new ivory columns, useful for propagation: it’s sufficient to take off an offset and plant it in a humid, sandy substrate.
