About:

Didn’t think money grew on trees? It does with the Crassula ovata! Commonly called the ‘Dollar plant’ or the ‘Jade plant’, Crassula ovata is a highly attractive succulent with oval glossy green leaves and bulbous branches and trunk. Bunches of small white flowers display in winter, although they rarely flower if kept indoors. This plant is very hardy with water needs similar to that of a cactus, and grows up to 2 metres in height.

Growing:

Preferring full sun to part shade, Gerberas are easy to grow plants that are particularly hardy.

Water:

Water before and during flowering, but make sure they don’t have wet feet. 

Soil:

Gerberas can grow in a wide variety of soil conditions, but should be placed in well-drained soil, as they do not grow well in poorly drained areas.

Maintenance:

Fertilise in spring and summer to promote vigorous growth and large flowers.
